Marquetry picture completed Summer of 1980

Dad (Russell M. Blood) was fascinated with pictures in one of the books I sent Mom and Dad from Germany. The challenge of doing the woodwork on the traditional buildings was something he wanted to try. He made two different pictures. He worked on this one during the summer of 1980 - it was his refuge during the time that Mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, had her surgery, and struggled to cope with the treatments. I'll find the pictures I took of him making this picture when I have a little more time.

The Bavarian influence was very exciting for Dad. He felt like he had taken his skill to a new deminsion. The result was wonderful.
