This postcard was inspired by figs. I know it sounds odd but I love figs and last weekend I was in Whole Foods to see if there might possibly be figs yet and sure enough there were. On my way to the checkout I saw the most wonderful cocktail napkin with dragonflies. Since I love to use napkins in collage I had to purchase the napkins. This series of eight uses the napkin ephemera in the background. I created the series on heavy stock paper that I found at a garage sale last weekend as well. It only cost 25 cents for about ten sheets 20 by 32 inch black paper. I guess the seller was cleaning house and meant it! Anyway, I scored big time.....lucky me!
423 has a secret meaning which I explained on the back of the postcard to the person who will receive the snail mail.
