Majestic Journey

Donna Mitchell-Collins's avatar Donna Mitchell-Collins

This year’s woodcut is in honor of my Dad, Dan Tucker! During this past year, he has had to overcome some incredible medical hurdles and has done so with great courage and strength! When I think about my Dad, I think about the majestic eagle and its amazing comeback in nature. My Dad is a retired wildlife biologist and spent his entire career helping to preserve our natural resources and habitats. I thought it would be fitting to commemorate his journey back to health with this piece. My Dad often comments on my “crazy” art, so I thought I would take my creative talent back to the realism my Dad loves so much. Here’s to you Dad! (Don’t worry I added my own flair to it :)
