This week's envelope and letter goes out to another awesome missionary that is serving in Washington State, home of some of the best growing for Cherries in the Northwest part of the U.S.. No doubt, she is doing a fabulous as she works to bring aid to people in that part of the country.

I haven't posted for a couple of weeks, but I have still been doodling. Recently, I've chosen to do some envelope art for young missionaries that I know, and that ROCK as examples of great young people willing to step out of their comfort zones to serve other people, full time, for 18 to 24 months away from their families. The two envelopes this week went out to a couple of Sister missionaries both of which are in different parts of Brazil!
This one is of a fruit I knew nothing about till I served my mission in Brazil. It's the cashew fruit, and the cashew nut comes out of the bit that protrudes from the top of the fruit.

This week I knocked out a couple of "Mail Art" doodles and letters to people that have brought me specific happiness, or took time to help me and my family feel welcome. It is wonderful to see just how many tender mercies are afforded each of us through the kind hands of others when you stop to look and take an accounting of the many blessings. The first, to a friend with the last name "Pepper"...hence, the pepper sketch. The second, for a gentleman who exemplifies bearing "good fruit" as explained in Matthew 7:20. These were done in Gouache and I enjoyed the way the color popped on the white background.
