Oh, No, I forgot to post this - Monday Mail Art - Out of Order

 This is the little kitten that I'm going to get after 13 May. It's so cute! I was going to call it Neblina, because of the description I'd gotten, but when I saw this photo, it didn't look very neblinosa. So I'm thinking of another name. Several have been suggested so far. This is my survey: here's the list and if you favor one in particular, let me know. Neblina, Bizoo, Zayfar, Nariz, Aziz, Chairman Miaou, Benefit, Xu Ling (after Xu Bing), Feliz, Tampoco, Punto Com, Paquito, and Sonar. The list could get bigger, but any input would be appreciated.

 I made myself laugh by placing large paintings into landscapes. Can you imagine a giant painting on the roadside instead of some advertising billboard?  Of course, this postcard is of the Blue Ridge Parkway (with a section not completed) which would never have a billboard on it of any kind.

The painting by the side of the evergreen lined road, which is in Washington state, would be a real jolt to the motorist. This is a tourist route, no trucks allowed.
Oh these do amuse me.

That kitty is so adorable. I'm partial because I love that kind of coloring on pets (cats, dogs, even rabbits).
Your postcards remind me of some government subsidized art project I remember hearing about (maybe part of the public works?) where artist were commissioned to create sculptures on a particularly long and boring stretch of highway.

Love the idea of putting paintings into the landscape. You are right it would be a pleasant surprise from seeing an advertising billboard.

And you have come up with some interesting names - very unusual (to my ears). A friend of mine has just gotten an older rescue cat and named it 'Beauty'. I will admit to being a little disappointed in her choice.
Zayfar sounds nice.

Okay Mim, those are the most complicated, hard to remember names for a pet I have every heard, LOL! I vote for Bizoo, which is very cute and easy to pronounce. What an adorable kitten.

I like Bizoo too! Although Chairman Miau is fun....
