Postcards From: Intro

Joyce Truong

Postcards: they show someone that you’re thinking about them when you’re away. It’s a simple but meaningful act with a special image, a short message, and a postage stamp. Much more thoughtful than a text or an email, which takes only about a minute to send. I think you can see where I’m going here! In this column, I will take pictures to capture some of the beautiful places that I’ve been fortunate enough to visit with my family. Traveling is one of the best feelings in the world. Hopping on to a plane and arriving at a new destination is like no other experience. Seeing new sights, tasting new foods, and encountering new cultures has made a huge impression on my personality and my life. In Postcards From, I will paint some of my favorite pictures I’ve taken on these excursions. Acrylic paints are one of my favorite mediums to use. I love the texture of paint, but watercolor can be difficult to control and oil paints are too boujee for me. Below are a few of the pictures that I’ve taken that I will be painting. Here are a few postcards from me to you!
