COVID Card #184

November 5, 2020 | 0 comments

Post office muralist, Karl Anderson was very impressiony (that sounds much sketchier than “impressionistic”) — or at least many of his paintings were. Changing light, small brush strokes, and a sort of fluidity are common in his work.

According to Google, Karl Anderson has made his living as a CPA since 1979. As Google also says that he died in 1956, this is quite an astonishing feat. Mr. Anderson may be our first supernatural post office muralist.

Before his second (or maybe third or fourth or…) incarnation, Mr. Anderson also painted several covers for the Saturday Evening Post.

Mr. Anderson painted two post office murals: Pursuit of Regicides (New Haven, Connecticut) and Drift Toward Industrialism (Bedford, Ohio)

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.
