"Dad's Shaving Brush" by Sandra Galda

"Dad's Shaving Brush" by Sandra Galda
6"x6" oil on raymar canvasboard

This is my dad's shaving brush, part of a set that includes a matching cup. The foaming soap is still in it, even though he has been gone 13 years now. I keep it in my bathroom cupboard to remind me of him! Thought I should include it today to complement yesterday's post of my mom's German mementos-she has been gone 20 years this December. Holidays, though special, have never been the same without them! If interested in purchasing contact my email address or use PayPal button if included in this post. Thanks for looking, tell me what you think-leave a comment! Paintings by Sandra Galda are copyright.

I recieved an award from Linda Hunt.

OH! My dad AND my husband use(d) these! These days actually my husband uses the foam in the can. I loved it when he used the brush like this, though. It's a little ritual. Beautiful work, love the cropping.

Hi Kelly! Thanks!!! You are so right , it is a "ritual" I can remember seeing the dramatic sweeps of the brush as he put it on--maybe he exagerated it as his little daughters observed? ha

I love it! My hubby still uses that method. Hmmmm, now there's an idea...
Very dynamic painting!
