COVID Card #144

September 27, 2020 | 0 comments

To my two steadfast daily followers: I apologize for the delay. I was in Seattle and, while I drew the COVID cards, I did not take my scanner. So, I’m playing catch-up.

Card #144 was inspired by another post office muralist who had a website: Milford Zornes. Wikipedia says he made three post office murals: Pomona Valley Life and California Landscape (both in Claremont, California), and Landscape (El Campo, Texas). I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Wikipedia was wrong. I’m not so sure there were two different Claremont murals. All signs point to the same mural with different names. Have I mentioned that I’m not a historian? Have I told you that all if this is sketchy?

Personally, I am rather fond of his abstract-ish (that is a totally professional art critic term, FYI) coastal landscapes (go figure).

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.
