Jim, a nice memory or your father and mementos from your family. Mo...McCartney was my fav Beatle.
As a teenager, I idolized Bobby Orr who played for the Boston Bruins. Now that I'm older, I laugh. This is one of those actions as a teen that can be embarrassing. I painted his picture, wrote a poem, and mailed it to him. In return, I received an autographed photo.
@ Janice... Bobby Orr was and is a down-to-earth wonderful and often shy person. In quiet, unassuming ways, he has done a lot of good in his life. Once, when I was about 22 or so, a friend and I ran into him and Darryl Sittler at the Toronto airport... and they kindly ..lol..bought us a drink while we were all waiting for flights to somewhere.
My hero was my brother, Teddy... who died when he was only 43. After becoming disabled, due to a car accident... and in constant horrific pain, he spent his time looking after others including being a single dad to his 4 wonderful girls and doing volunteer work whenever and wherever he could.
I've liked and loved a lot of persons in my life, but I always tried to see and understand them as they were, not to idolise them. Alive they were much better then any idols. Thus I have not become kind of a pagan fanatic.Immortalise them in my art? I do not think that my art can become immortal, thus I never had such opportunity.I made some pictures of persons whom I love. Currently my grandson is starring in my art most often.
Yury, he is one precious little fellow. I love your photography. I know what you mean about grandkids. I waited 60 years to become a grandmother. Now I have three little granddaughters in the span of three years. Love them! Next week, two are staying with me. I will be taking lots of photographs, become exhausted and not spend much time here. They are well worth it.
I'd have to say Jimi Hendrix. He died a year before I was born, but as soon as I heard his music, it spoke to me on a level that nothing else ever had. It still does, too. I'd say that I've idolized him to some extent.
