Six more postcards, image side up, in two rows of three. They are mostly abstract but one has a quasi floral element. The colors are darker and more opaque than the last six.
Six more postcards
Three postcards on a brick wall, address side up, in a cascade from top left to bottom right. The first has a fall oak leaf with disparate colors (green, dark crimson, gold, purple), the second a stylized floral motif, and the third another leaf, this time in gold, orange, and crimson. The recipient information is obscured.

My desk
A woman with short dark hair making postcards at work table cluttered with art making materials. Outside the window a gloomy day on Middle Street is partially discernible through gauzy curtains.
