golden memories

for Dad



The Shadow

My father painted this in oil as a copy of an original painting featured in a book. Unfortunately he doesn't remember the original artist, and, so far, I have not found it on the Internet. Thanks to Ann and Dida for identifying the original artwork as The Shadow by Charles Blackman, Australian artist. The Schoolgirl series 1950s. www.art.net.au/art-detail.asp?idImage=64441&idArtist=831 limited edition silkcreen print 75 x 105 cm TSC Artwork on a wall

So sad posting this, as my dear old Dad passed away early in the morning on Friday 10th May. So this is a tribute to both Mum and Dad for the Sunday challenge - Mothers. I am so grateful to both my parents for the love and opportunities they gave me. I wish they could still be here, and will love them forever. xxxxxxx
