Sunday Postcard - Fathers



It is Father's Day in some parts of the world this Sunday. Spare a thought for those men who never became fathers. This is my tribute to my great-uncle (by marriage). What he lacked in macho he made up for in pizzazz. Good old Unc, what would I do without him? I wonder if he is turning over in his grave. I think this is number eight in the series I am designing around him.

All my own work. Photo from family album. Background and clothes painted in digital painting software - ArtRage - where bling is king.
