Postcard love!

Above photograph: inking faces – for a new series of illustrations for art prints & cards. While yesterday – February the 14th – was a day set aside to send messages of love and friendship to our near and dear. It may also serve as a reminder to pause and make note of other days – other moments of celebration that occur throughout the year. If you love sending and receiving snail mail – keep a set of blank art cards or postcards in your top drawer – for those personal hand written notes and messages any day. Whether they end up archived as personal history in a shoe box, pinned on a cork board, or popped in a frame as art to enjoy every day – postcard love is real.

With rabbit in one hand and an eye to my camera lens I am mindful – shrinking or growing in size. Comparison between tiny and tall -telescoping my viewpoint from delicate wildflowers… …to a pair of cockatoos high in the canopy branches. I hear their echoing cries. Mindful of the moment, the living detail of colour, of light – often passed by with intent on the activity of walking. ©Annmarie Scott 2016 Related reading – Previous white rabbit post  The white rabbit brooch in this Spring adventure, may be found at PaperCloudSky
