"Surprise Daddy!"


"Mona & Ben" 5 1/8" x 6 3/4" (drawn at miniature scale)
charcoal and white pastel on gray sand-grit pastel paper (NFS)

My father passed away in April '07 and yesterday would have been his 86th birthday.  It's still a tough week for me, so I wanted to honor his memory with one post, since my blogs began after he passed.  I love knowing that if he were still here, he would be on his computer, checking them every day!  I'm sure he is enjoying it in spirit anyway.  This is drawn from my favorite photo of Dad and I, and the photo-version is also my screensaver.  I have a post coming up within the next month for my Mom also, but this one's for you Dad.  Love you always!
