If this is Thursday it must be postcards, 333

The unused postcard this week features one of the mural artworks by Larry Eifert.  Sections of this mural were also made into a United States postage stamp series. Other murals that feature not only the old growth forest but deserts and swamps were also made into stamps.   The card is an Impact photo-graphics with the number #12721.  Eifert’s artistic talent together with his love and knowledge of nature have made his paintings sought after and displayed in many parks, preserves and refuges from coast to coast.  His wife, Nancy Cherry Eifert, who is a photographer and provides countless photos as painting references, assists him. 

Like other examples of his works the one on this postcard is filled with amazing detail, animals, plants, and birds that help put the viewer right into the scene.  It is fun to find things and identify them.  Some are hard to find until they accidentally catch the eye.  This particular card is also available as a jigsaw puzzle.  I think I may just have to get one of those too.

Enjoy looking at the details and finding things.
