This tricycle is a digital re-print of the two-colour ink-print my father Jay Hurt made as an announcement of my birth--crafted by his blessed, gifted hand(s)--and shared with Friends and Family at that time.
Jay and Charlene Hurt hand-picked me (Me!), and adopted me into--as a partner of--their Family in early May, 1968, two weeks (plus some change) after my physical birth.
I hold one of three (or so) copies of that original, and I have cared for it as I would my own hand.
I treat this avatar--my FB 'profile picture' as such, and am proud to hold it as mine.
My Father taught me everything I have come to understand as Art; through his creativity; through /his/ works; through his Love.
It is my honour to have the skill--one of these many gifts, imparted--to re-create this work of art, in this medium, and to display this as part of my Me.
I am so, so proud to be able to do so.
I am so, so gratified to have this understanding.
I am so, so happy to be a part of my Family.
Thank you Mom.
Thank you Dad.
