Check out this lovely Official Postcrossing postcard from Russia! This is a painting postcard done by Russian artist Maria Pavlova. Maria is a contemporary artist whose painted works reflect still lifes, scenes in daily life, and many cats! She has quite a few works of art and has won a number of awards for her paintings – no amateur, folks! Here is one such work with one such cat, curiously pawing a trio of cookies. (Ginger snaps? Snickerdoodles? Chocolate macarons?) I love how the detailed brushstrokes and brush blots are (not sure if that’s the technical term for areas where the paintbrush is pressed but not moved) and how they turn an ordinary scene into a look at a mini encounter with feline curiosity. Great choice of card! Thanks so much for sharing it with me, Katya!
