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).
