A Good Man...

Hello friends...

I just felt the need to share this with you tonight. 
My father-in-law passed away this last weekend.  
I am with my husband in Florida.

Out of the many wonderful things my father- in -law was, one was an Artist.
During this sad time, I have been surrounded by some of his beautiful pieces of art.

I thought I'd share one of his self portraits.  I so love this piece.

This past summer my husband and I were able to visit him.   I have memories of conversations with him about art, music and the theatre he loved so much.
I know he even enjoyed visiting my blog occasionally.
  
I only wish we'd have had more time...




I hope your week is off to a good start.

I'll have to get caught up with you when I get home. 

Becca
