Dad relaxing

I found a trove of photographs possibly my sister’s. Like many families we have many photos and sometimes I find some that please me. My Dad used to relax in the den in a rattan cushioned seat. We still have a table from the set. He was the picture of relaxation in this photo. I found some other good ones too.

The photo. His right hand behind his head is cut off so I fudged that hand a bit.

My Dad was a cool guy. I think he’d like being the subject of my blog entry today. Love you Dad!

    He looks like a cool guy. And is there no greater tribute than when we create art from a loved one’s photo? The care of really looking closely at the person and their surroundings….this is really beautiful. I struggle with a difficult and violent parental relationship (both deceased). You’ve given me the courage to see them through old photos as victims themselves. Next step to healing is making some art ‘about’ them. So, thank you.
