A quiet place to relax and take a peek at some thoughts and images from my studio and farm. Hopefully you will find something to amuse you. Please leave a comment if it is worth your time.

I recently came into possession of a stack of postcards that had belonged to my Grandfather. He was born in Bulgaria in 1899 and emigrated to the USA around 1920. I cannot read the writing on these, it is all in beautiful Bulgarian handwriting. These are some of the stranger images.
Look closely at the image above. You can see "Death" holding his scythe, hovering next to the ill looking person.
What is going on here? It seems to me that this is a portrait of some writer, with his characters and stories lurking around him, as though we are seeing into his brain, into his thoughts.
Is this one some old soldier on his deathbed, saying farewell to his faithful charger?
I hope to add more of these postcard images in the future. I find them fascinating. I will show the backs on some too.
