If any of my visitors are interested in receiving a postcard of an award winning piece of art done by our son Doug, please email me privately with your mailing address and we will be glad to send it along. Doug won first place in the "ink" category - high school division for his rendering of one of Thomas Nast's Victorian Santas. This piece also won first runner up to all of high school (at a fall festival). So, we are pleased to have had it printed on a post card to share.

I'm adding more details here as I'm being asked: the original work is 11" x 14", cream colored background. Doug used "Rapidograph" black ink to "draw" the work. Thomas Nast is one of Doug's favorite "cartoon" artists. He enjoys his political art work. He was very talented indeed! Nast basically invented the original "Santa" that we have come to know.
