Fireworks or Underwater scene from Kerri Pullo

Received this great piece from Kerri. The paper feels like canvas. It looks like she created these shapes by blowing the yellow paint as opposed to dripping it. Fantastic and unexpected color scheme. I was also amazed that she sent me this card from Esoteria. This…

About the Ainu in Japan from Deb Davidson

This lovely card arrived in Greece yesterday from Japan.

Debbie does etegami and this card is an exception,

A beautiful (as always) card from Kerri Pullo.  I just love the subtle textures and colors in this one - with the splash of white violating (what I interpret as) a peaceful desert night - almost like it's jumping in front of the camera waving its "arms" and shouting "see me...I'm here - right here!!!"

I have these little snippets of occurances going on in my head sometimes...…

From Guido Vermeulen - Belgium

Another great piece from Guido. I have been studying his Mail Art and it is still a mysterie how he does it. This piece is called 'A cascade of dreams ending in a Dutch poem'. In the dream Guido is looking for his cats... in colour.

Thank you Guido.

New Alexandrian Library Boekie Collection – Boys are Up – Mink Meets Pink – De Villo Sloan (USA) and Cuan Miles (South Africa)

Mink of the Tangerine Oncoming by De Villo Sloan. How delightfully scrambled shades of red can warble  when mixed with a kind of pulp-fiction old movie poster and garrulous words. Free Verse in action.

Somehow, I’m going with Christopher Smart and a turn at Mr Potters asylum and a change from curable to incurable.  I know I may be talking in code, but this is…
