Planet trash from Skybridge Studios

Sometimes open covetousness pays off:

Diane Keys posted Moon trash she had received from Lisa--beautiful squashed can Lisa found under a tree--and I like a pig said I wished she'd found two. She had! I couldn't believe it. It was my birthday, so she mounted it that same day, wrapped it in great cowboy paper, and mailed it off. Also because of the day, the postal…

Ray Johnson Tribute from Svenja

I wish I could read what Svenja wrote on the envelope but I don't think it says Flying Monkeys. The envelope is great and I'm assuming the Ray piece is related to his birthday. The buttons are enormous. I've never seen any that big. They are about 2" in diameter and… Continue

LADERS ARE SUPOSED TO MAKE OUR WAY UP POSSIBLE. SOME TIMES IT’S A DELUSION BECAUSE SOME LADERS ONLY TAKE US DOWN AND UNDER.

Dream series, the Beginning (The House on the Hill) - from Cheryl Penn

During the last months we have seen some of Cheryl's Dreams resurface. Most of them were wintery Nightmares, inhabited by blinded Pigs, haunted by Monsters of all kinds. This recent series is a continuation of it, but also a new start. We are clearly slipping into a warmer and less tormented season. Without ever leaving the Fantasy behind, of…

Photo Vispo from Jim SantAmour

A really complex piece-it is ony 4" X 3" tall and came as is without an envelope. He writes that is is his own photo of a motel in St. Petersburg. I would never have thought of using a photograph as a background until Helen's Vispo Call. The text appears to be done in acrylic paint, but I can't tell. All of it has texture-I love this piece thank you… Continue

Spooky it is

 

Just when I wished for more Nancy-art I found this wonderful card in my mailbox. Nancy wrote that it was just too spooky to keep it and that she wondered, "To whom can I send it?" - I seemed to be quirky enough! I'm really happy to be quirkyfied!! I love it, the way the painting creeped (?) into the old paper, the fading colours... 

And I love the…
