COVID Card #202

November 23, 2020 | 0 comments

Pietro Lazarri painted four post office murals: Harvest at Home and News from Afar (Jasper, Florida), Good News (Brevard, North Carolina), and the Kinfolk of Virginia Dare (Sanford, North Carolina).

While not particularly evident (well, not at all evident) through his murals, most of Lazarri’s work shows a very expressive, fluid style that, perhaps oddly, reminds me of Giacometti’s sculpture. I am referring to Lazarri’s watercolor and ink work. I suppose it’s almost redundant to describe watercolor as fluid, but not really being educated or experienced in talking about art, I find myself having difficulty describing it in any other way.

Your turn.

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.
