Last Four Heart to Heart Postcards

There was just enough of the before-quilted metalic red fabric left to make four hearts. This prompted me to make "just" four more valentine postcards for wounded soldiers.
The backgrounds were cut from larger pieces of "ortwork". I had collaged these together from fabric and thread scraps quite sometime ago as elements to use in future art pieces. I certainly hadn't thought their complexity would end up representing the fragmented, interrupted lives of the recipients of these cards.

This is how the twenty-two valentine postcards are signed on the back. The "Thank You" is not just from me, but from all who are grateful for the personal commitment and sacrificies of the soldiers who receive these valentines.
