The Father's Day: The Father in the Artistic Eyes of His Children -- 1


_

Today, the third Sunday of June, is the Father's Day. It is observed in many countries. On this day, children think of their fathers in a special way and demonstrate their love and respect to them.

On this occasion, I present below some of the drawings and sketches of me. These show how my children saw me and wanted to preserve those particular moments in artistic ways. Many of their works got misplaced and lost, yet a few samples are given below from the few that survived.

Let me know how you like them!
