Recently Received Mail Art: Autumn 2015

Enjoy some of these documentation photos of the pieces I've received from some very artistic friends:


Mail Art by David Stafford PETA might get after David Stafford for this one (I heard that Tara is ring-toss game challenged! She has to swim with the "slow" whale pod! Tara is restricted to the shallow end of the pool!) but David's absurd and hilarious sense of humor is giving me the giggles. (Thanks for the cow, David. I can affix it to future mailings I wanna send…

from Construction Sea 10/17/15

Amy Irwen's postcard size work features plastic mesh & textile stitching along the right edge. Dated 09.21.15. The upper corner dolphin (from Sea World, as noted on the back) jumps above the card. Although seemingly untitled & bearing the phrase "The Monster Lives" along the bottom, I refer to this work as "Dolphin Boy". "Unlock…

I am again the recipient of surprise mail art. This time from Maria Teresa Cazzaro.

I had no idea this was coming.  It arrived nicely packaged in a hand made wrapping, which I love.  I didn't want to tear the wrapping, but trust me, the paper was sturdy, blue and white stripe.  Too tempting not to recycle at some point, but for the moment I just like to look at it.  The card itself was a wonderful execution of recycled cardboard, various paints (I guess possibly both acrylic and enamel) Tissue was layered on and then more paint. It's an inspiring piece. Mille grazie…

Here is another piece of mail art from Katerina N. in Greece

I send Katerina  some circles and the clever girl sent me back some artwork with a few of the circles I sent her. I always look forward to opening mail from her.

Thank you Katerina. Expect something in the mail soon from me.

Time for me to start posting some of the art that was received when I was away.

  Grethe H. Bjornhaug, send me this beautiful postcard.  I remember the day I found it in my mailbox.  It was a gloomy, overcast day.  I was so tired and all I wanted to do was sit down and not move.   Grethe, please know it arrived in excellent condition.  I love looking at it over and over again.  Mail art will be going out to you tomorrow.

Thanks again for your wonderful card.…

'THE MAGIC FLU(^)TE' -(Great Big Collage #14) -- although there is neither magic nor a flute......


I play (badly) rock'n'roll guitar.

I play (slightly better) the alto recorder.

In France, the recorder is known as the 'flu(^)te à bec'. [The ^ is supposed to go over the u, but I can't seem to manage that].

There is another type of flu(^)te, a 'flu(^)te traversière'. This is a flute -- the type of flute that Wolfgang Amadeus obviously had in mind when he wrote 'The Magic Flute' opera ('obviously' because he didn't mess around with…
