!?Cuba?!


I’ll be honest by saying that I don’t know much about Cuba other than they are famous for Cigars and Missiles (argh! Those drills as a kid)… but being a fun traveler I did the ever popular google search and Ta Dah thanks to Darcy of Art & Sole I found this Artist Amelia Pelàez, who inspired this week’s Postcard it is

From Allen to Liz – background spritz with Perfect Pearls, drawn in graphite then painted with acrylics




And it reads:

Miss Liz E. Woods                                                                                  
                                                                                       
Arm is doing well. I’m almost liking my “leisure” time. Ok it has its moments like when I was able to doodle this tribute to Cuban artist, Amelia Pelàez.
Scary old castles & ghosts & such, but I will admit I did get a good belly laugh when I pictured you running out into the night…arms waving about, hair blowing wildly, perhaps a scream echoing behind you.
When you wrote of “he” & “him” does that mean you have met a man? If so I trust you are being careful not to get too involved after all you are in a vulnerable state of heart. 

All my best
Allen Bell


Humm is about all I can say about his reply.

Happy Art’ing y’all

Thanks for including the artist's link- her art is FUN. I'm learning more about Cuba than I thought possible (because like you, I thought it was just missiles and cigars!)
