I'm continuing to go through the incoming Summer '18 mail art here in the Lyons' Den.

July brought a tiny envelope with two grand artist trading cards from Geneva-based German artist Uta Richter. Both ATC's feature subjects with sad, expressive eyes. It appears that there is pain behind those eyes, but what is the cause of the pain? Here's my thoughts...

The girl with the egg has what looks like a red heart-shaped mark under her left eye. Perhaps her heart is fragile - as fragile as the egg. The other female may be disillusioned by the world around her. Her state in life does not allow her to be as free as her fine feathered friend.

Very awesome artwork! I love them! If you'd like to learn more about this talented painter, you can visit Uta's website: uta-richter.net.

Thank You Uta!
