a box of postcards
art turned into messages
a bargain priced find
I found the box of postcards on one of my trips to Half-Price Books.
I never know what little treasure I might find when I visit!
I opened the wooden box and picked the first postcard in the box to show you.
The back of the card reads:
Allow Nothing to Worry You, 2002, mixed media on plexiglass, 20" x 24"
c. 2004 Inez Storer, From Mementos: 30 Postcards, published by Chronicle Books
On the bottom of the box:
"Slide off the lid of this wooden box and immerse yourself
in Mementos - a visual feast of warmth and wit from
Point Reyes, Calif., artist Inez Storer.
Each of 30 different postcards printed on heavy craft paper
features one of Storer's evocative paintings, collages, or drawings.
Even after you send them, you'll have a keepsake of your own:
the beautiful silk-screened wooden lid you can hang as art."
I'm thinking there will be a few more posts featuring Mementos!
A big thank you to our hostesses:
We finally had some rain!
Two days of off and on rain.
Not nearly enough to break the drought,
but I'm thankful for the little moisture that we received.
Back to the old weather pattern of hot, humid and no rain.
Wishing YOU well and a fun-filled weekend!
