'Pater' celebrates my father's birthday in 2021 and is a gift for him. It is accompanied by 'Mater' which celebrates Mother's Day the day after. I used pencil and a stencil, then acrylic and a wide brush, then a digital photograph, then I colour-matched the base colours of the paint that I used for the letters from the paint tubes and filled them in. I removed the paper background. I took a photograph of a page of T.S. Eliot. I enlarged the letters. The effect is that I have painted over the top of a first edition copy of "Little Gidding". Three editions of each were made: one of each for Mum, one of each for Dad, one of each for me.
