We take our daily postal deliveries for granted. At least I do. Even though much of my news comes to me digitally these days, I still look forward to getting the mail.
On those days when nothing in our mailbox is addressed to me, I feel disappointed. Don't you? Those are the days when whatever little packages I expected to get seem bigger and more important.
Getting mail really IS a big deal. It's where we receive wedding and graduation and birth announcements. It's where we get letters and cards from loved ones. What will the world be like when we go paperless and don't get daily post deliveries anymore?
LILACS WITH KLIMT'S LADY WITH A FAN
by Elizabeth Floyd
30 x 24", Oil on Aluminum Panel
I remember how fragrant the house was when I brought these lilacs inside. I knew I wanted to create something special with them. Something that celebrated the month of April and the joy and beauty these flowers have come to represent in my life.
So I paired the lilacs with some art books that have been influential to me as an artist. The open book is a catalog of Gustav Klimt's art, the painting is "Lady with Fan". I love the symbology of the phoenix flying behind the lady on a field of millefleurs.
The other books are about Childe Hassan, Winslow Homer, and Whistler. The Whistler book is of an exhibition of etchings and paintings completed in London. I still remember the day I went into DC to see this exhibition, then afterwards sitting under a tree and looking through the exhibition catalog and just absorbing the lessons of art even more.
WATERMELON & PUMPKIN by Vicki Vidal Blum
24 x 30" unframed, oil on linen canvas
I began this painting many years ago. It just never worked for me. I wanted to add the pumpkin flowers because they were so beautiful and fleeting, especially the new buds with their cool blue and green exteriors and hot centers peeking out. So, I got down to task and grew pumpkins just for the flowers and blossoms. I finally succeeded and painted in the long awaited blooms and leaves. It is finally complete.

RISING STARS, SETTING SUN by Susan La Mont
24 x 36", oil on canvas
There is a stretch of highway on Route 15 that winds up past Point Of Rocks and the Catoctin Mountain region of Maryland; it’s dotted with farms and orchards and is quite picturesque. One early evening coming home from a family visit, I was captivated by the way the setting sun washed warm light over the fields, while the coming night darkened the sky.
