Finley Union's Big Mail Art Package!

Finley says his mother made the three "Santa motif thingies" many years ago -- he had the scanned and can now use them in his own art projects.

Lorella's "Landscape"

My scanner doesn't even BEGIN to capture the brilliance of these colors and textures. The card is painted, but also the lower part is covered with fabulous brocade silk. I love the tear near the bottom right with the whitish paint revealed. It's really not white but many colors, all reflections of the colors in the rest of the piece. Just wonderful! Thank you so much, Lorella…

Anita Hennig's Kunst-Post from Berlin

Anita, I just love the bird on your envelope. He looks thoroughly drenched and disgusted at his plight. Up behind him comes a cat, I think, with a purple rose in her mouth! Inside, another wonderful creature! I hope you are safe, Anita, and can have a good holiday in spite of the madness that surrounds us all! Peace to you and everyone in…

Shelly Tracy made the lovely Solstice card with the sun on it -- and YEA, today is Solstice! Sheri Rice sent the stitched, painting, glittery and poetic card at top right. Below them is a beautiful card from Lynne Gurnee. The forest scene background is from a rubber stamp a friend gave her. Lovely. Thanks you…

Two New Batches o'pomes from Richard!

Here's a Dada version of the "fish without a bicycle" quote AND two erasure poems. Love the way he makes these -- so much more elegant than simply marking through words. And then... the back of the envelope with a heretofore undiscovered piece of pre-Columbian art…
