COVID Card 307

March 8, 2021 | 0 comments

Thanks the gods for the Museum of Nebraska Art for providing bios for the last couple of female post office muralists, including today’s artist: Eldora Lorenzini. Other states could step up a bit when it comes to recognizing the women artists of the WPA era.

Most of Lorenzini’s work that is viewable online are graphite and watercolor paintings depicting religious figures and paraphernalia. Don’t dismiss it at first glance (as I almost did) or even at second glance. Somehow, for instance, in my first two times through, I missed Death Angel and Cart. That is a sketchy theme if ever there was one. So far, there have been no do-overs in COVID cards. Maybe after I’ve made 365, I’ll make some special editions from time to time. (insert winky emoji because that’s the world we live in now)

Lorenzini created on post office mural: Stampeding Buffaloes Stopping the Train (Hebron, Nebraska).

COVID Cards

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.
