COVID Card #319

March 20, 2021 | 0 comments

Isabel Bishop painted a lot of ladies — and why not? Styles were pretty cool when she was young. She was quite good at rendering people (in two dimensions on canvas and paper — don’t get creepy). Some of her paintings are like candid photographs — not exactly what people would have expected from a painter in her day. You can see some examples of her work at the websites for the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Radford University, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Bishop created one post office mural: Great Men Came from the Hills (New Lexington, 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.
