blog the fifth - Mary Anne's Curious Artistamps Projection

I have been busy for the last month doing acres (so it seems) of collage and dozens of envelopes so incoming mail has been largely put by until a more auspicious time.  Today was the day and I have just spent a delightful hour as a sort of island in a sea of post!  Wonder after wonder; generosity piled upon generosity! 

My September is…

Bits from the Art Desk of Robin Jeree received in Toronto!

A postcard of interesting random scraps from the art table of Robin Jeree.  It's a bit like archaeology thinking about the projects that led to these bits and pieces.
