"Surprise Daddy!"

"Mona and Ben" 5 1/8" x 6 3/4", charcoal and pastel on gray sand-grit pastel paper (NFS)

I forgot that I wanted to do this post on both of my blogs:  My father passed away in April '07, and March 18 of this week would have been his 86th birthday, and it is still a tough week for me.  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 them 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 for my Mom within the next month also, but this one's for you Dad.  Love you always!
