Tribute to My Father


John J. Duffy, Sr. and Mom pictured above at their 25th wedding anniversary
My first solo exhibition at the Paterson Museum is dedicated to my Father! 
Everyone loved him so!

I am the luckiest girl around to have had such a wonderful father. The world lost a wonderful being on Sept 11th,  1995. As each year goes by I find that my love for my Dad grows stronger. We all miss him!
He was the most unselfish, kindhearted person on this earth.  One can only hope that I will become half the person that he was. He sacrificed so much for our family to bring us happiness and joy  his entire life. Always putting his family and other first. He believed in me and always made me feel safe and happy no matter how bad I thought things were. I used to work with him on some weekends on the construction sites helping him. Those days were the best! I miss him greatly every day but he is constantly around me. After he died my mother gave me the paint set he used to paint with.
LITTLE ARTISTIC SECRET: Every painting I do I place a dot of paint in the painting from my Father's paint set. This makes my paintings very personal and they must always be hung proudly and with love, for a piece of my Father is in them.  The dot of paint is blended into the canvas to represent an embrace that my Father is giving each of my paintings.
Recently my Mom found his Dog tags from being in the Marines. She also found all of his pins that he used to wear on his Marine uniforms. I wear these proudly!  A token of remembrance that I wear next to my locket that has his photo in it. When I am feeling sad or frustrated I open the locket and touch the photo  to get strength and happiness from my Dad.
