Postcards

Three postcards submission
Over the summer I submitted these three postcards to a show for The Postal History Foundation Library Exhibition. The theme is "what do you love about Tucson."  For me it is really all about the unusual plants that grow here. They are really like nowhere else I have ever lived. Most of the US has pretty much the same plants from state to state. Of course Florida has some very unusual tropical plants but the Sonoran Desert is really outstanding in the variety of unusual plants. I could mono print with them all day long. And some days I do just that. In fact, the prints were piling up so much that I recently started cutting and trimming them for collage materials. It was getting out of hand.

At our recent Paperworks meeting they were displayed in book form and they really looked wonderful. Some of the folks in that group really know how to make wonderful and unusual book structures. I tried to get some good photos of them but it was rather difficult due to the crowds forming around them to view all the lovely postcard submissions. I will have to go see the exhibit when it opens.  Maybe then I will get some better photos.  It is exciting for me to see my work somewhere other than my house. Getting into shows here is very difficult. There are so many wonderful artists (a good thing) but that also means a lot of competition. I keep trying though in the hopes that I will get into a show at some point. A lot of them are "invitation" only.

I also want to apologize to all my fellow bloggers who have commented and welcomed me back to the blogging world. It seems that ever since Google dismantled their commenting structure, I cannot comment on anyones blog nor can I even respond to comments on my own blog. I tried everything but to no avail. So please know that I read all your comments as well as your blogs. I just don't know why I can't comment. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas on how to fix this, I would love to hear about them.
