COVID Card #141

September 23, 2020 | 0 comments

Cliche warning… It seems like just yesterday I was announcing the milestone of the 50th COVID card. Time doth fly.

Card 141 was inspired by post office muralist Suzanne Sheuer. Overall, Sheuer’s painting technique is not something that really resonates with me, but I do like her charming playground drawing (see previous link). I do like her post office mural compositions. I like the way she works around doors, windows, and clocks; and I like the stacked/vertical element in some of her murals.

Ms. Scheuer painted three post office murals: Incidents in California History (Berkeley, California), Indians Moving (Caldwell, Texas), and Buffalo Hunt (Eastland, Texas).

Cards 1-100

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.
