I am always very excited when postcards arrive in my mailbox from countries that either A) I don’t get often, or B) I haven’t gotten at all. This is my first postcard from Spain.
I don’t know what to say about this postcard. I tried looking up information on the artist, Malcolm Greensmith, but I couldn’t find a whole lot about him, other than that he is a renowned military artist. I don’t know when he was born, or if he is still living. I’m assuming he is from Great Britain because that is where the card was printed, but who knows if that is a correct assumption. If you like his artwork, there are several sites offering cross stitching designs created by him.
I’m not sure how ploughing is related to the miltary, so perhaps this was drawn by a differnt Malcolm Greensmith. Either way, I like the postcard because it’s cute and has animals on it. Perhaps, that is why the sender chose it for me. I like the old feeling the postcard has, too. It reminds me of the country. It would be nice to have a horse to help me plough my garden this year. I am not looking forward to hacking away at the ground again, even though the hard work eventually pays off.
PS If you by chance know more about this Malcolm Greensmith guy, be sure to share your knowledge in the comment section.
