COVID Card #123

September 5, 2020 | 0 comments

Yes, we’re still talking about artists. There are a lot! I might mix it up a bit, but for now, I’m digging learning about artists I’ve never heard of.

Today’s post office muralist is Harwood Steiger. Steiger painted the mural, Harvest at Fort Payne, for the Fort Payne, Alabama Post Office. Perhaps more interesting for this former fiber arts student is the textile work that he and his wife, Sophie, did.

The drawing on card 123 is inspired by the landscape in Harvest at Fort Payne and Sophie’s shirt in the textile article.

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
