Dad's House

My Dad died in 1977 of a heart attack when he was just 42 years old. Amazingly I don't have any photos of him or really anything tangible at all to remind me of him except this watercolor. It's of a house he lived in on Gwenn's Island in Virginia after my parents divorced. I had just started to explore learning how to draw and was still very timid about it and so only produced this one memento of a weekend I spent there with him. I'm posting it in response to the "Everyday Matter's" challenge to draw something "Dad", and in remembrance of him on Father's Day.
