Valentine Mark Herman: Where were you in the 80's and the year of HM the Queen

Where were you in the 80's?  This question seems to be going around the website quite a bit.  First one must try to remember the 80's, and then try to come up with a return Mail Art reply to Val.  The pressure is on once again.

In the year of HM the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, things are not all cut up to be as one sees on the tele (TV).…

EIPHNH found in "End of Summer Blue... Tall Greek Blue Grass"

Katerina,

Your mailart is a wonderful expression of EIPHNH (PEACE). Thank you.

Blue is my favorite color. Your beautiful painting/artwork reminds me of relaxing walks in nearby parks. This past weekend I went for a walk with my family at Kensington Metropark and enjoyed a few hours of the sights & sounds of nature surrounding Kensington Lake. There's…

A love for Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water home & estate

Claire,

Your mailart blends so many ideas/details/influences into one piece. You have an excellent ability to connect with many levels of one's being.

The experience begins with an olfactory sensation of warmth & congeniality, details on the envelope bring England, France, Germany & USA to mind, next Japanese washi tape & a handwritten note get ones attention, a loquacious…

Biscuits anyone?

Jim,

When I was in college years ago I did a summer internship in Raleigh. I love that whole area. The rolling hills, friendly people & clean city are a big thumbs up in my book. The ambiance there is very relaxed while also has a rich diversity of people/talent. Did you live there? or on vacation?

Thank you for this great postcard.…

THE NURSING HOME & The street musician

Guido,

The creative spirit is continually expressing itself... Sometimes messages are understood immediately and other times the impact of the message is meant for a future understanding or acceptance. "The Nursing Home"? What inspired this theme?

Is the photo of a building in Brussels? Great balcony railings & street musician.…

The Republic Van Patland Postbird achieves mission & delivers peaceful mailart

Patricio,

Thank you for this mailart. It communicates such a strong message of peace. Your title as "Celestial Scribe", the beautiful Patland Postbird hummingbird drawing with present/parcel on it's beak, the creative message from the Patland Post Master General, the handcrafted miniature envelope with many artistic details, the fun "achieved" note... It's all a beautiful work of art.

I…

Woody's Shenanigans from Carina

How am I able to instantly recognize art from Carina at one glance? It must be the subdued tones, vintage ephemera, and subtlety. The best translation I could find was that this was about Hekku Hawk and Woddy's Shenanigans. Carina will have to enlighten me on that…

The Polo Mint Adventures Part 3 -- loosing the Polos but finding a real hippy and some Chinese warriors

Bonjour!

This is the third and last episode -- for now -- about my Museum adventures with Polo Mints in the Netherlands.

Just in case you have forgotten what a Polo Mint looks like, here is one:

This episode invovles visits to two Museums -- the Limburgs Museum in Venlo and the National Museum of Ethnology in Leiden.

First to Venlo, by train,…
