I'm back home after a lovely visit with my dad & his beautiful wife Lizbeth.
I'm glad I took my camera so I could take photos of my dad's wonderful artwork.
The bird is a tribute to a beloved pet cockatiel he used to have.

It's beautiful, just like your work. I certainly see some resemblances, especially the colors he put together in the third picture. No coincidence I think!
PS My name is Lizbeth too :-)

How cool! I got shivers looking at these and I'm not usually an abstract person. I can see a family connection too, as Liz said.

So contemporary and graphic, quite a contrast to your art (which is my style) but beautiful work all the same. My fav is the last one of the bird!

This is absolutely fantastic! I love the simple yet complex forms on the cockatiel - just stunning.

These are absolutely wonderful. Thank you both so much for sharing. I'd also love to know what medium he uses. I'm envious of his clean controlled lines....not sure I could accomplish those in any medium :-)

I can see a touch of the Mondrians going on in these, lovely. I'm not usually an abstract person, but when I saw the huge Mondrian(Piet)in the National Gallery (London) I was so arrested by it, I just sat and stared, very tranquil and calming I felt.

The cubes remind me of the work of M. C. Escher, a Dutch graphic artist, 1898 - 1972.

I love all of the precision and movement in your father's work.

Amazing, I didn't know your father was an artist too. His work is great! it would be fun to see his bird next to one of yours. Both wonderful yet such different styles.

I love how simple they look yet you can see that he had to spend quite some time drawing the lines inside some of the shapes.

I really like the second one with the cut up circle!

I really love his line work. I'm so happy you took the time to share his art with the world! It's cool to see what you took from him and incorporated with your own art. Have a beautiful weekend!
