What's older than timeless beauty? I bought this back in the late 80s, when I was in art school. I chose Egypt for my assignment. The assignment was to design a travel poster. Or maybe it was simply a poster.The postcard was meant to be reference material.
I want to say it turned out to be a fabulous creation, but truth is, it was pretty bad. I couldn't capture the likeness as well as I wanted, my pyramids were muddy, the type was awful, although the font I chose was just perfect. I was such a novice artist--in love with Egypt.
I carried her with me though. We went from Colorado to Texas. We we migrated from Texas to South Carolina, and back. Beautiful Nefertiti.
See the penciled words on the upper left? I wrote:
At the very bottom left corner is printed: Painted limestone bust of Queen Nefertiti. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
I've wracked my brain trying to remember why I printed Getty Oil and the address . . . and the phone number. Hmmm. Ahh! It's all coming back to me now. I took an assignment there. As a temp. Artists need money if they don't want to starve. Wow. Digging around in the morgue of my mind, and my actual morgue, is a pleasant trip into the past. Makes me smile.
So. Something old . . .
Here's something new. How appropriate that it's blue! The first Wizard of Oz entry. Blue skies, and wide open spaces. A Chimney Rock, Colorado. Remember Chimney Rock ala Stephen King? LOL. Is there a Chimney Rock near you?

Umm . . . How about two strips of Oz stamps? Keep in mind there's more. Could be the best is yet to come? I dunno. I am not an Oz fan.
