This is a digital postcard I made from a photo I took of my son and his Dad (taken 22 years ago) in our yard in Mill Valley, CA. I always loved this photo and to me it represents "Dad" in all of its best definitions. I used an actual old post card as the background layer and then blended the photo in Photoshop , adding artistic filters.
My own Dad left when I was very young. I saw him once when I was 25 (and pregnant) and have not seen or heard from him since- that was 29 years ago. So, needless to say I don't have much to go on when it comes to my own relationship with a father. But my husband (we've been married for 35 years this July!) represents the best a Dad can be; kind, encouraging, supportive, and patient . I'm not a grandmother yet but someday if our son does have kids and his own sense of what a "Dad" should be kicks in, he's been given the best example possible by his own Dad. This is my entry for the Sunday Postcard Art Challenge.
