Jess's father is a hard working man who is trying to support his family; to him, being an artist is not productive and somewhat  girlish.  He makes no pretense of hiding his feelings about not  supporting his son in what he dreams of.  His father seems to be a hard man, very unsupportive and very unsympathetic.
