Welcome to the last week of 29 Faces of February Challenge.
This awesome Challenge is hosted by
the incredibly artistic Ayala Art.
Here is my face #24:
Not the kind of faces that I have been doing,
yet this one has a real story.
My brother passed away several years ago.
He had done 3 1/2 tours in Vietnam.
He wrote me as often as he could and his words were very simple as if he was talking to a 3 year old, not a 8 to 12 year old.
He started every letter calling me "Ipswitch",
a name that stuck even as I was 49 when he passed.
He ended every letter with this dog drawing.
As I started to draw a face last night, this dog was all I could think about.
I hadn't thought about this drawing for years and here I was,
sitting and trying to create a face, and yet here was this dog.
I knew this was today's post.
I have shed a lot of tears since last night.
So today's face is dedicated to my Big Brother Bruce,
from his little Ipswitch!
