Inspiring Pink Hats

After witnessing 100,000+ people gather in San Francisco on Saturday (photo link here), I felt inspired by the Women’s March and those pink hats.   I started by digging into my horde of unused art postcards, got out the pussy hat pink paint, and these are the results.  Here is some of today’s outgoing mail art.

The Lady in the Pink Hat

Is it okay to rename Joshua Reynolds’ portrait originally titled Lady Cockburn and her Three Eldest Sons?   Last year I paid a dollar for an old guide from London’s National Gallery. I have been altering it ever since.  I just felt, the times being what they are, that Her Ladyship was in need of nice pink pussy hat.

The Year of the Rooster

Today’s outgoing mail art includes some Chinese New Year mail art celebrating the Year of the Rooster and including the cool postage stamps for the event from the USPS.   This is a series of 17 for 2017, plus 17 is one of my lucky numbers and we are in need of a lot of good luck to get through the year ahead.  Happy New Year!
