Each generation has its own sketch artists who use pencils, charcoals, pastels, chalks, and crayons to render hometown scenes, rural vistas, and family events in sketchbooks that are cherished by a cadre of descendants. This article by Bill Burton, Postcard History’s publisher, highlights two such practitioners of pencil art who lived and worked in a special part of the country – the DelMarVa peninsula. Keep watch in Postcard History’s “In A Few Words” section; you will soon discover a new series highlighting postcards featuring sketch art from across America.
