Dot & Jack Replinger Christmas Card Collection, #1
With Mom’s passing earlier this year, our family has been finding and reviewing her and Dad’s art, furniture, clothing, and personal possessions. At least for now, I hold her collection of Christmas cards. Here is an early card, surely produced shortly after their marriage in 1945. The technique looks like watercolor over stencils with some free brushwork. A sponge was likely used for the fade on the scarf and tree, and a pen was used for the lettering.
