A great loss for Brunswick County and the nation. We are fortunate to have a number of his original paintings and a few we commissioned him to paint for us, as well as many of his prints hanging in our home. We will always treasure his work as we remember Bryan as a great artist and a very good friend.

Mr. Varnam was a very talented artist. I have one hanging in my office and my home. He will always live on through his paintings. I wish his family much peace in the days to come.

Bryan always impressed me with the “Love” he shared for His Wife, Family and his passion for his artwork! Prayers of Comfort for His Family... and Many Friends!
