self portrait 9: i'm a daddy's girl

self portrait 9: i'm a daddy's girl


29 0ctober, 1919 - 20 sept. 2015


on wood: acrylic paint, front of father's day card i sent my dad, bottlecaps (at the bottom) with photographs of my dad and i (sorry they are hard to see), other photographs, collaged paper


24" X 24"


my father: 96 years old. an amazing man-wheelchair bound, dementia, aphasia. but still he knows me......and when i speak to him he always says "i love you baby".

my father: he feels the most important "job" he had in life was to be a dad.

my father: i love him more than i have words to say.

my father: ever year ( recently) when i buy a father's day card, i think...maybe this will be the last year i get to buy a card for him. yesterday i bought a card and sobbed in the father's day card section of the store.

my father: i have always had him to love and be loved by him in my life.....what will i do without him? i can not bear the thought.

my father: he will always be in my heart.


my father:

surely no girl ever felt as secure and content in her daddy's love as i did as a child.

surely no woman ever felt as respected and cared about by her dad as i do today.

i feel our relationship is, and has always been, exceptionally close.

one thing i know for daughter ever loved her dad more than i love my father.


i am a daddy's girl.
