My Dad's art

I posted my mot here's quilt on here recently. That was her artist connection. My dad also had an artistic aspect. He drew pictures as a boy but was not encouraged. There was always work to do on the farm where he grew up. Later in life he visited an old man out in the country who made split oak baskets. He cut the trees , split the wood and made the baskets. My father spent a lot of time with him and learned how to make them. He made them until his arthritic hands would no longer cooperate. I am indebted to both of them for passing down some of their talents.
