…ahhh, the romance of the postcard. They are a hug from afar, now quite rare. Well worn, and sometimes bearing an exotic stamp, I have purchased some of the same images, 25 years apart. They are like friends and loved ones, staying in touch. A moment in time, that you put up at work, or the fridge at home. It’s like sharing a dream.
I grew up writing postcards to family and friends. Those days I was only half the height of the rotating postcard stand so my selection was limited. Then came the process of finding the prettiest stamp I could find. This is a wonderful adventure in a strange land, involving expressions like ” plus beau’ or “pui Bella”.
This collection of drawings recount some of my favourite places. I drew them on location, trying to capture a moment. Some were started in 1976, some this year. I have embellished them with stamps from different eras. They are pen and ink and watercolour originals, approx. the same size as a generous postcard. They are sent to you well packaged, and with a single rag mat. They fit existing 11 x 14” or 12 x 16” frames. Fees are $200, plus HST.(I can send them to you, this includes packaging) No copies made .
Do feel free to come to my studio and see them.(please call first to arrange appt.)
