|CD WEARING MY CARDINAL THEMED FACE-MASK|
The pictures atop this entry feature Chris Deatherage modeling two of the face-masks from my collection. The first image shows him wearing a mask whose design is based on, Good Friends, one of my black and white impressionistic photographs (that is available printed on an array of surfaces for wall art from Fine Art America AKA FAA) while the second one features him wearing my Northern cardinal themed face-mask.
Some readers may recognize Chris's (CD) name as he is the formatter and editor of my three volume hardcover book series, Words In Our Beak...

...where the stories are set in my rooftop garden and told from the perspective of Cam, a female cardinal (whose images are featured on each of the book jackets and throughout the stories). CD is also the designer of my web-site, patriciayoungquist.com.
Now, getting back to my face-masks, it has recently been noted that the importance of wearing a face-mask cannot be stressed enough as a means a to prevent one person from inadvertently spreading the coronavirus to another.
But the effect of one seeing so many people wearing masks has already had a profound psychological impact on many persons; therefore when FAA recently informed me that it had added the ability to imprint my images on cloth face-masks designed for everyday use when out in public through its sister site, I was thrilled at the prospect of being able to have this done.
With so many people wearing face-masks, I started to think what it must be like for babies, toddlers, and older children — or residents of assisted living and nursing home facilities cut off from visits by family and friends — to be looking into the faces of adults wearing a “clinical–looking” mask.
How frightening and confusing that must be for them! I hope that seeing my images imprinted on face-masks makes the world a lot more cheerful for them.
I have joined with fellow FAA artists by selecting four of my images to be used with face-masks.
Two of the designs can be seen in the photographs of CD at the top of this posting and the other two styles can be seen directly below in images that you might recognize from a prior entry here on Blogger.

Each mask, made from 100% polyester, is one-size-fits-all using two woven, elastic loops to secure it around the ears.
Fyi, a press release announcing my masks (created by CD) was sent out earlier this month and remember, when purchasing, please be sure to read the full description on the product page.
