My father was an artist. In one corner of our basement stood his wooden easel, and his upholstered chair where he would sit when he studied his paintings; a table held jars of various sized brushes, tubes of paint in primary colors, and stacks of hardcover art books. He taught me how to mix primary colors to get other colors and how to blend in white to soften the hue. He taught me how to clean the brushes and stand them upright in the jars so the brush end would dry. And he taught me how to see beauty all around me. His favorite subject to paint: trees, flowers and skies.

Today is Father’s Day and this Week’s Photo Challenge is ROY G. BiV- the colors of the rainbow.

I chose photographs that remind me of my father’s beautiful paintings.

Happy Father’s Day Daddy!
