This so-called clean-up hits a home run in my view. And it's hard to portray via scanner, but the central face in this piece is a translucent overlay on the faces lurking underneath. A…Continue
This first piece from Keith arrived a week ago, and what an elegant yet whimsical beauty it is. Did he know I have a thing for dots? Probably not. But everything about it works, not just the dots--other composition aspects, great colors--and waxy textures, which I'd love to hear about if you're…Continue
That is one gorgeous, colorful, laughing man. One of your many finest, Frieder. I embarrassed Frieder a few months ago by declaring in someone else's blog post that "I like everything he does." He then sent this, probably thinking it's nothing if you read the back, but as usual I think it's really…Continue
and the other side: …Continue
Is KDJ missed or what? Yesssss. She sent this piece in November, as well as a most generous gift of a well-known collage book I'd not yet obtained. It became an instant favorite: KDJ, since you're not forgotten, why be gone? Ack, not to pressure, but as you can see it is sorely tempting to try. ...
I love it.
Jim sent a fine, foodword-ridden, sharply composed collage based on a photo he took at the New York State Fair in Syracuse--very nicely done: …Continue

Mail art *worlds* hitting your house when you're stuck in it for months? You people are so wonderful. Someone somewhere sometime said "Gratitude is one of the least articulate of the emotions, especially when it is deep." I know this for a fact, having tried to write this thank you too many times to count, and words failed. So: Thank You. You sent clever, beautiful, funny, minimal, thought-provoking, inspiring mail art for months, beyond hope or imagination. We exchanged before,…Continue
Was the package marked "rusty iron" that arrived today and appeared to be empty mailed not long ago? Methinks it might have gotten here PRONTO due to its weight--almost lighter than the packaging paper itself, almost lighter than air. But I was fooled:
Not quite yet, though at first after…Continue
This is the second time Katerina has stitched a found can to a K.N. blue painting, but this time we have 3 at once: There the piece is, now on a wall, as it arrived in a large envelope. Katerina may have thought I'd want to cut the cans free and eventually do something else with them, but this…Continue
Stephanie's post below about Guido's amazing book has me blogging same day as arrival, a rare occurrence. First the envelope art, then a bit more of the book: Title: "What hits me in the eye is that there is no end to our imagination." Clearly.…
After sending a kind of strange abstract piece to Svenja which ended up looking like a square owl, I received this from her: All decked out in their babywear. Wow! Am I in love! Aren't you? Hilarious. I have many Svenja favorites, and this ranks right up there with them. It sorely tempts one to continue to…Continue
