"Hi Debra, you're right, it is--Norma's piece is very elegant and original, a real beauty. I ran out of scanning steam a couple of years ago but manage one every now and then. Yours would certainly be up here if I could do this more often.…"
"That IS big news. Clearly, the red-striped eel was desperately needed back then and will fast become timeless. As for Mrs Grundy, anyone qualifying for a gift-wrap dept. job should be listened to, Dave. I like her vibes. You and Patti are lucky to…"
"That's it! The envelope looks 100% not opened, so you fooled my eyes completely. This we *can* blame on age, for starters. More than once a mail-art envelope turned out (say, a year later) to contain something I'd not realized at first.…"
"This by Dave is so topical, so sharp + witty, and so appealing artistically (aren't all of his, though), that I have to scan + post it even though my best scanning days seem to be over or on long hiatus. Thanks, Dave!
"Howdy, Nancy. I'd love to show the Fikasso but that was years ago and I've no clue where it may be today. Probably composting in a landfill somewhere. YOB-f PS. I think that 'lope was the one in which you sent the asemic piece I…"
"Say, Fike, your fascinating cards+note arrived, thanks a lot. Glad you liked my envelope--but you forgot to open it. Check it out. Asemic! You'll blame the oversight on your age, so I will too. Won't you post your Picasso? N.B. "
Howdy, Nancy. I'd love to show the Fikasso but that was years ago and I've no clue where it may be today. Probably composting in a landfill somewhere. YOB-f PS. I think that 'lope was the one in which you sent the asemic piece I admired.
Hi Nancy, I am writing from Germany and have seen some of your collages by accident!
I am really fascinated by them, because I am also a fan of collage and love to work with different papers and materials. So I would love to exchange mail art with you and send you something of myself the next days!!
Nancy Bell! What a loverly surprise to find your envelope in my mail box. I knew it was yours immediately. Isn't it interesting how we can recognize the "voice" of our mail art pals? Loved the beautiful little three-scrappers. They make me want to get back to my happy art fun room--soon, soon, soon. Thanks so much.
