The diversity of postcards uploaded to the Postcards from the Edges website is astounding. From doodles to political statements, people are using postcards to express everything and anything to the world.

In this series of weekly blogs, we want to give you the stories behind some of the postcards. Hopefully it will inspire you, and many others, to get involved.

This postcard was uploaded to the Postcards website from author and artist, E. V. Rose. She talks about her passion to create art at a time when she could paint without hindrance. When she looks back on her paintings she finds this one the most soothing and restful of all.
