One of my favorite songs is: “You’ve Got A Friend (originally by Carole King with Roberta Flack )
This song came rushing to my mind as I was creating my recent fiber artwork of this fine gentlemen! One of my dear friends Sheri shared a photo of her father with me. Her photo was in black-and-white and it was absolutely stunning, I realize that we seldom describe a masculine photo as stunning, but it was captivating! I hadn’t seen a photo like this in ions! Gazing at this photo transported me back to pleasant childhood memories of the father figures my brothers and I were surrounded with. Our father, uncles, grandfathers and their friends were strong figures in our lives, Yes, we could rely and count on their strength, loud voices, steadiness, humor, kindness, stern demeanors and definite bravado. So I knew I wanted to pay tribute to them as I recalled the impact they made on each of us! This quilt creation honors them all!
Oh, yes google & enjoy Donny Hathaway singing, “You’ve Got a Friend- it’s a real treasure!!
