Finally finished my brother scott"s "Dad doll". This is my dad as a kid...he's holding some string beans and a tomato because thats what he loved...his garden and tomatoes! I made him as an angel...because all of us kids know thats what he is now....helping us along on our "earthly journeys".
I know this doesn't look exactly like the picture i had of him...but he came out a little older...so this is what i imagine him to have looked like at the time. This is just for scott to have a little spirit doll when he just "needs to connect" to his dad, who loved him .... And it is also a subtle reminder to always keep a small part of ourselves child-like (just like our dad....always looking at everything in life as a "funny" thing !!) no matter where we are in our lives !!!!
