Had a lovely surprise this week when I received this wonderful postcard from Donna.  So original and so much to look at in it. 

I enjoy all the complex cross hatching every time I look at it, and it's the kind of art I really like that starts a story running in my head.  It's propped up on my easel so that I can glance across at it when I'm working (playing) at my work table.

As a bonus I like the reverse posting side of the card just as much.  Again, plenty to look at and read.

I'm sure our postie, a very pleasant middle-aged man, really had a good time looking at it and reading it.  Seeing Donna's message to the postman makes me want to write on the one I send 'Deliver the letter, the sooner the better' as in Karen Carpenter's postman song.

I've been working on the one I have to send, and think it will be finished soon.

Thank you so much Donna.  The best postcard I have ever received.  Jez


  1. Isn't it fabulous and so complex. I have yet to get to grips with cross hatching. Not enough patience. She is gorgeous Jez :)

  2. h aha ha

    so glad you like her...

    I did for a moment worry she had gone AWOL - these ghosts have minds of their own...


  3. Oh an original Donna artwork - absolutely gorgeous!

  4. She is beautiful - what a gift!! I would have her in a frame and up on the wall :)

  5. Yes, Sarah, she will be framed up on the wall - when this endless rain stops (IF it ever does) I shall be out to buy a frame.

    And I hope no Collabor-art members are having problems with the flooding, I send my commiserations, and I feel so sorry for the people all over the country who are having their homes and belongings ruined.

  6. I loved this when I saw it on Donna's blog. I bet your postie finds your mail a change to deliver.
