Great Print from LMF

It was so good to hear from Lesley and I love this print she did on a doilie. The message was written in a circle on the back. The face is sad and I would imagine this is a reflection of the difficulties she is experiencing at this time. So glad things are better though. Thank you…

From Ruud Janssen and Thom Courcelle

I received mail from Thom Courcelle and Ruud  Janssen in the same week. They seem tied together in some way – so Thom – your work has informed the meaning I have ascribed to Ruud’s new FLUXUS word.

 ZAPIL:

Time is short, soon there will be ZALOP of it left.  Use every minute wisely – its an un-renewable resource.…

Painted Canvas from Karen Champlin

I was amazed when I received this piece by Karen. I don't remember seeing anything similar on the blogs, it looks like a completely new turn for Karen. She has framed the text with thick brush strokes of various colors, sometimes blending into each other, sometimes not. The textures are also…
