Pretty cool isn’t it? This was done by my dad, Joe Fidler. I love sketches that have some ink and watercolor thrown in to jazz them up! Years ago I gave him a sketchbook for Christmas, he filled it full of wonderful sketches and gave it back to me. PRICELESS! I featured my dad last year with a few more images… he needs a website I think, ha ha… Personally I think he should make cards, they’re just so special! What a neat keepsake from different places you’ve traveled to! Everyone has photos, but how many people have a sketchbook filled with great memories? There’s no limit to what this man can do. He’s so creative and I love that about him! He’s always creating… watercolor, oil, sketch books filled with wonderful creations, beautiful ornaments made out of wood… I remember when we were young he made wine, polished rocks and had a dark room in the basement where he would develop the best photos ever!
This photo (below) was when my mom and dad had just boarded the boat and were leaving Monhegan Island after a visit. I’ll never forget that year. We had a great time and they were heading back… I think that’s the time they saw the whale on the way back to Port Clyde, that’s not something you easily forget!
I just wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! You’re the best! I love you so much and hope you have the best birthday ever!
I’ll catch you back here tomorrow!
