Always working with his hands
Legacy is mine
I visited my mom and dad recently in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona.
Every time I go, my Dad (seen here at his recent Daddy-Daughter Show at the local college gallery),
requests that I bring a project that he can help with in his workshop.
We have father-daughter-shop-time – my favorite!
Dad has always worked with his hands, as a carpenter, cabinet maker, builder, and multi-media artist.
He’s a master at detail work and fine crafting.
So, I had him help me cut out wooden hearts and retablos.
I primed them…which doesn’t look so great..
but one must be patient!
They’ll soon look something like this…
and finally morph into something like this
Wish I had the photos of this new batch ready to show, but they’re simply not sufficiently presentable yet.
