A Mini-Tribute to my father... PART 5

(continued from Part 4; sketches are my father's work.)

His wife and his children were not the only portraits my father sketched; in his later years, my father would sketch bartenders and servers (without exception, female and young) at his favourite bars and pubs, giving away their portraits… this he also did at annual class reunion trips.  The receivers probably only humoured him most of the time, but I am sure he felt some satisfaction knowing that others appreciated the little, unique gestures, and the thought of putting a smile on someone’s face through such a solitary activity as sketching.
