Love, Dad

Following my father’s death, I found many handwritten letters that he’d sent to me when I was young. Some were written when I was away at summer camp. Others, when I was in college.

Dad had distinctive, neat handwriting. He always signed his letters “Love, Dad.” I scanned his signature from one of the letters, enlarged the image, and traced over it. “Love, Dad” appears in the base of the candle in the collage.

My father also loved birds and flowers.

I made this piece in honor of and in memory of my father.
