Days at Dads

My sister and I are spending days at Dads to get ready for his retropective design and art show. At first my dad asked me just to help out, but after he died this February unexpectedly, I went from helping out to being in charge of it. I am getting the opportunity to see my father's 40 year body of work in the process.

I always knew that my father should be famous. He is a renowned artist in the region that we grew up in, but I can't wait to make sure that his art lives on and make more people aware of his paintings. If you missed out on knowing him during his lifetime, check back to find out the dates of his shows on this blog.

I loved growing up in the modern redwood butterfly roof house that he designed, in the city he designed.
