Romance

romance 8x10 acrylic collage

I side-tracked myself with family history yesterday. My father was part of the 379th bombardment group in WW2 and I have just discovered that I can acquire copies of most of his 30 missions. I asked him how on earth he could get back in the B-17 after the first combat mission and he just sort of shrugged and said "that was there job". There was about a 75% failure to return rate on those missions.

Then it sounds like your dad was excellent at his job. Amazing stories in your dad, I'd bet. Love the colors in this piece, Paula.
