"Thanks for the kind comments, folks. Any distressed elements must've happened before painting, probably when I cut off these bent ends of the box my bamboo backscratcher arrived in. Highly recommended, by the way. The backscratcher, that is."

"Tight-rope sounds right + true, as does the Amazon (if you don't actually live there, maybe). I'm always thankful for Dave's insight and humor, and thank you for blogging, Kat ---  "

Nancy Bell Scott commented on Jay Block's blog post Bullock's Oriole by MacPhail
"This will require years of study. Never a dull moment! Could this MacPhail be an offshoot of the McPhail piano, especially one built in 1913?"

"Your mail arts are so varied, Jan -- exploratory and insightful. I'm lucky to be on your card list this year. Maybe you'll continue into another year, I hope. This has a primally asemic flavor to it, and I love it."

"P.S. Re: the top two images in post below of crushed+twisted can from Hamburg: in blogging I saw the first image as The Big Dipper, and the second image -- same can -- as a flower. Have to love possibilities."

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!!

Best wishes !!

Charlotte from Göttingen, D

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.

NBS, I'm glad you like them. Keep them if that's how it goes.

Asemic Front is going to work and it's going to be more than collabs, so no pressure there.

My problem is I don't know how to make an unfinished piece. All the collab foundations I'm making end up being finished pieces.

So I would very much like to use your work in some form in AF. So maybe it will be collabs or some other format.

But it will work out. Thx for the message, DVS

Wow, Nancy -- thank you so much for the 3-scrapper! Your work is just completely amazing. I love the text (which I have to try to read) and the layers of torn paper, the ink and paint--everything about these is wonderful. Your envelope is groovy, too. And Happy Birthday!
