Collections Carousel – Wes Sod Greeting Card (Rose)

Wes Sod Greeting Card - Rose
Wes Sod Greeting Card (Rose), June 1978

One of the few fully-colored artworks by Little Falls artist, Wes Sod, currently in the museum’s collections is this greeting card with a crayon drawing of a single red rose.  Sod, who was known for his black and white drawings, apparently liked to use an occasional touch of color.  The choice of color is usually red in the museum’s small collection of works by the artist.  The message inside the card (HAVE A NICE DAY! WES) is handwritten in strong black ink and continues the genuine simplicity of the beautiful image on the front of the card.
