A Small Artistic Tribute

One of the talents my dad possessed was for detailed artwork. He painted murals with fantastic scenes, as well as small scale portraits on any number of topics. But his most endearing work often came about in the simple act of writing a letter - wherein he did a sketch on the top of the letter or made it the entire design for a letterhead.

On this page are four such sketches that I took off four of his letters to me, between 2001 and 2005. The work itself says it all, and the attention to detail. To see that detail, you can click on each image to bring it up!

What is it they say? A picture is worth a thousand words?

Well enjoy the 4 thousand "words" embodied in those sketches!
