Postcards to Mrs. Lindahl series
100 paintings, acrylic with gel transfer overlay on masonite, 24" x 16" each, 2000
The source of these paintings were 100 postcards that I found in an old second hand book store, all addressed to the same woman (Mrs. Lindahl) in Westlock Alberta, from the 1920s to the 80s. These postcards are all from different people, from around the world. After showing these in The Works in 2000, I found out that Mrs. Lindahl owned a shop in Westlock, and people would send her greetings from their travels.
The process I used included painting the image from the front of the card, and then applying a gel transfer of the back of the card onto the front image.
