From who ?

This mysterious knight arrived, but I cannot decipher the sender. I recognise a thumbnail sized Hilma af Klint painting in the background, I absolutely love her work! It is a digital print, so it might have gone to somebody else too. Do you know who this is…

Fom Amalgamated Confusion

I received two postcards from Amalgamated Confusion, which was a surprise. We had never exchanged mail before and I have been absent for such a long time. I like the style which reminds me a bit of my own way of creating digital collages on envelopes. I just find it a shame that they get all beaten up on the…

Learn From My Mistakes

Well, nuts! A couple of weeks ago, I did some envelopes with acrylic paint on them and then mailed them out without taping over the peel & stick address labels I put on them.
