The Art of Jeanne Card
James Card's wife, Jeanne, is an accomplished artist, working mainly in woodcuts and paints.  Through the years, I've been fortunate enough to see many samples of her work.  I'd like to share some of it with you here!

This beautifully executed woodcut print of the city pier in Canandaigua, NY hangs in my home.  I purchased it at a print exhibition Mrs. Card participated in during the early 1980's.  Please click on the image for a better look.

An outstanding woodblock print of the immortal Lon Chaney as he appeared in the silent classic London After Midnight.  The Cards used this image on one of their Christmas cards, with the inside inscription: "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Let Nothing You Dismay."
Another memorable Christmas card featured Jeanne's lovely block print titled 'First Snow.'

A new design for the 2008 holiday season!  Jeanne's daughter, Chris Card Fuller gives us some background: "She used 'Sheba', the Persian cat which I deposited on her doorstep when my husband and I were getting ready to go to China.   She really captured Sheba's personality - a cat that had been already once dumped by her breeder - which we had taken in as 'foster parents' in south Florida.  From there, she went to Paris and Normandy for a sojourn before returning to Rochester.  That's a cat's life!"
