Born 1996
Great Grandfather
Mixed media

I dedicate my ofrenda to my great-grandfather, Donald G. Black. I dedicated it to him because he was a great man who stamped a lasting impression in my life. He was a caring, loving, and wonderful grandfather. I placed a baseball field on the bottom because it was his favorite sport. We loved the Chicago Cubs and that is why I put a Cubs logo in the box as well. I painted the inside blue because it was his favorite color, and painted it purple as well because he died of pancreatic cancer. I also put an Iowa Hawkeyes logo because they were his favorite college team. I placed an Irish flag in the box because his father and mother moved here from Ireland.

Mi bisabuelo

Dedico mi ofrenda a mi bisabuelo, Donald G. Black. Yo se a dedicó a él, porque él era un gran hombre que estampó una impresión  durandera en mi vida. Era un abuelo cariñoso, amoroso y maravilloso. Puse un campo de béisbol en el fondo porque era su deporte favorito. Nos encantaba  los Chicago Cubs y es por eso que puse su logo en la caja. También pinté el interior azul, porque era su color favorito, y la pinté de morado  también porque murió de cáncer de páncreas. También puse el logo de Iowa Hawkeyes porque era su equipo de universitario favorito. Puse una bandera irlandesa en la caja porque su padre y su madre se mudaron aquí desde Irlanda.
