Dharmadada Erni Does it again!

Erni made me an art book! So wonderful. The title is The Power of Ten. Erni is so good at this that he almost makes it look easy. It's not. Thank you Herr Erni for a wonderful treasure!…

Peaceful mail from Marie Wintzer

I am lucky enough to have received a triptych from Marie. I truly love that it's asymmetrical. It contains a Haiku.



Dusk at the park, soon

Her velvet steps on the bridge

A crack in the wood This piece is so beautiful, if it were in a store, I couldn't afford it. But that's

what makes mail art so damm amazing. The constant flow of magic to the

mailbox. I'm grateful for my mail-art friends. Thank you Marie.…

Rainy/Cosy triptych - for Cheryl Penn


Rain on my shoes
Drizzle on my face
Drops under my umbrella
Falling
Falling
Falling...
Fancy a nice cup of warm tea?

Received from Jen Staggs, USA--Saucy Earth Science

The postal service should give themselves a hearty round of applause for safely delivering this mail art--the paper is thin and old--what I would call fragile--and yet it made it its way across the U.S. with nary a rip. The handwritten calculations, stamps, and images are terrific. Thanks,…

A Blog Post for Brent Leopold. There's a Pig on My Head!

Mail Art Received 10th November 2010.



Brent's work arrived in a flourish - Prem the postman was eager to deliver this one! He always sits on my 'stoep' to drink orange juice because its such a long way up the hill. He's old and the walk exhausts him - but this time he could see what was INSIDE one of my exciting envelopes.







"Whats that on his head?" he…

I am not the red giant - from Cheryl Penn



When I found this envelope in my mail the other day I thought that Cheryl's book chapter had finally made it to Japan. But as I opened it clearly said "I am not the red giant". My disappointment wouldn't last for long though, because I knew I had an outstanding piece of art in my hands.

And anyway, it's well known that giants are not to be trusted. He says that he isn't, but I think he might well be The Giant. His face is beautiful, but I… Continue

Mail from Julian Grant

Julian and I have discussed this. We share a passion for all that is dark. When I make a piece that comes from a

most disturbed place in my psyche, I send it to Julian. Like a mother with a bottle of milk, he responds with something soothing. This beautiful dark piece is my milk. The script is Frankenstein. Perfect. I'll close but just thought I'd share...the book I'm currently reading is Serial Killers, The Method and Madness Of Monsters.…
