ART NATION from Karen Champlin

Always a joy to see a "Karen card" in the mailbox! A bit of "artful...artfully" and textured rubbings,

even her finger print, as we dance across the stamped landscape of art Nation.

And in the  corner....Karen knows,

add a fragment of a map…

Another envelope...this from Mim Golub Scalin with "mim'imal" inside!

Mim has done an amazing job of recycling MY envelope to her, so with the postage sticker from the USA, I still get those Greek stamps (which are new issue and which i did not have before) Thanks Mim!

And what about this "taped" card?

Who will find the "meaning" for "Beyond Don't"?

Don't go Beyond....or...what exists beyond "Don't"?…

A Japanese papers-n-print-overflowing envelope from Ms,Lovender in Japan!

Ms.Lovender, aka Heavenly angel, sent some beautiful textured Japanese papers, which I am not sure if I will be able to use...'may wish to keep them and not send them out as origami or collage. It will be difficult for me to part with such delicate papers. Also in the envelope were papers with fun images with bunnies and bears. These I have already in mind the creation of "365"…

You know it is going to be great, when it comes from John! A note...for "FUN"? No, for "FUV" (very fun FUV!)

And a FLUXUS note (money), too! Payment for the FUV, no doubt!

Well, that is not all that was in the envelope...let's go ASEMIC

From Queen of Asemics, Karen Champlin...beautiful!

Another stunning layered collage from Karen was in my mail box today...(actually 2 cards from Karen!)

"W" is the unknown known of her asemic piece. And the scan does not do justice to the fine textures and colors of the papers, but they are FAB! Vintage penmanship writings in the background make for a gentle asemic landscape.

The the other card, small in size ,…

Pennies from heaven or the Haptic Werewolf! Herr Haptic Ernie's latest...trashpo or not?

Mapped-out location on the "ceiling" of Herr Haptic's Cathedral of Collectables ( box:15x30cmtall x 7cm deep...6x12 inches x 3 inches deep). From DJ Turner to Blaues Barhaus to Lost AD? unknown location to me! Red shape is really a 3-dimensioal match box, with cathedral "windows" on either side.…

Together in the mail box with Cheryl's "Secret Heart " came Jon Foster's "HATE"...tape transfer,

Well, "GENERAL"...hate? It is a multi-layered tape transfer image, full of "characters" , some smiling in a vintage-postcard-ad way! Other image is a first-aid "helping hand". One has to not pass over art by Jon lightly. As multi-layered are the imageds he uses, so multi-layered it the art with meaning!…
