Sunday Postcard Art - Fathers


This is my Dad in 1926, so full of light and hope. I wonder what or who he was looking at as this photograph was taken?

I lost my Dad 11 years ago just as he was learning about computers. I wonder what he would have thought if he had known that just a few years later he would be the centre of attention and possibly being viewed across at least three contents on Father's Day?

I miss him lots.

Credit to Wil for the background from last week's Art Creation Friday, and KlarissaH for the frame (both much altered). The photos of Dad is my own.

Font is Journal Handwriting.

Thanks for looking.

What a handsome little guy he was. I'm sure he'd be amazed at the blogging world, Ann. This is a beautiful tribute to him.

Seems he is looking at you... And probably he really is!

(I noticed that you left me a comment after leaving your link to your card at Sunday Postcard Art... Am I right? Please, tell me if my comment with my link is there!!! I tryed 3 times, and it doesn't appear! Can you tell me if it's there? :O) Thanks!)

Touching story ! And its really cool that you used a "real" photograph in stead of using a "borrowed relative" :)
