Day 17 - an art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture etc.)
I thought long and hard about this. I could pick something famous and priceless like the Mona Lisa or Michaelangelo's David, and they are all fabulous works with amazing stories behind them, but I have picked something far more modest and closer to home. Despite that, it is more priceless to me than any old master.
This is a piece of work by my Dad.
I'm aware that my artistic ability and the fact that I can earn from it, is the culmination of his encouragement and faith in me. He's my staunchest support, my most honest critic and my inspiration, and his artwork should be seen but never was because he gave up his dream to support mine.
