Several years ago we were in Provincetown, Massachusetts when I stumbled on this postcard at the William Scott Gallery. I don’t even recall if we saw any of Daphne Confar’s works on display, but I was obviously taken with this image, and still am.
Doesn’t she look like a character just waiting for a novel?
Bunny could talk on and on, but always listens to the wind
If Ma Joad hadn't been horribly poor, I could picture her looking like this!
Kathleen: I had to look up Ma Joad but now that I have, I think you are right. There is something about the style of the dress and the ample bosom that makes me think of a farmer's wife in the 1930s living out on the plains somewhere.
Oh, that is so many possibilities for stories!
And, as avid Postcrosser, I now want this postcards so much! (I would illustrate stories about my late great aunt Anni with this! Anni was such a character!)
Thank you for sharing your find!
