My Dad

For those of you who have been following my painting a day blog you may have noticed that I've been absent for awhile. Unfortunately, my father recently had a massive stroke and passed away one week later. I've been in Arizona for the past month to be with him at his bedside and with the rest of my family. It was quite sudden and a complete shock for everyone -- it still doesn't seem real -- however, I get comfort knowing that he is in a better place now.

He was a good man and we had a great friendship. He always critiqued my artwork - even when I didn't ask for it - and he was my BIGGEST FAN! I will miss him tremendously!

In Loving Memory
