Years ago, my dad entered two drawings into an art competition – and was awarded first and second place. He’s kept these two pieces in a portfolio bag since then…until two years ago when my mom decided to get them framed for his birthday. It re-ignited his love for art and he started really getting into it. What resulted, aside from some really gorgeous pieces, were some pretty incredible heirlooms that I know our family will cherish forever.
First up, Brooklyn. A photo taken while spending the day at East Glacier in 2009.
And the pastel drawing that resulted:
And Jonah. With just a snapshot taken at my parents house 🙂
And of course, the pastel drawing that resulted.
I love them…and love that we have such amazing and displayable heirlooms, something our kids will have from their *Papa* as they get older. Are there any special heirlooms you have for you or your kids?
