COVID Card #308

March 9, 2021 | 0 comments

Kady Faulkner. Sigh. She studied with Hans Hofmann. I’m pretty sure I mentioned this in a previous posting, but I love a good repeater — ask my jazz musician partner. Hans Hofmann was brilliant. I photocopied his lectures about abstract expressionism and kept them in my paint box in art school. I carried them with me everywhere. Yeah. I’m that kind of a dork. Oh, and another shout out to the MONA (Museum of Nebraska Art) — I think that’s three bios in a row.

Enough about me and my buddy Hans…

Faulkner worked in a variety of painting styles and made at least one mosaic mural. Were more of her works available for online viewing, I might confidently say that just about anyone could find something of hers that resonated with them.

Faulkner made one post office mural: The End of the Line (Valentine, Nebraska).

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.
