Back in May of this year, Shellie Lewis sent me some beautiful mail art. Now that I'm uncovering my mail art and slowly trying to get back into the swing of mail arting again, I wanted to write a long overdue blog about it so everyone could enjoy it.
The large picture of gently swimming koi is in ink, painted by Shellie on a piece of recycled paper I had made for her. I love this picture so I found a frame to protect it and it's displayed in on my desk at work. These koi and surrounding foliage are so graceful and flowing, they're elegant, classic and calming. I'm sorry it's taken me so many months to write about them publicly.
To the left you'll see an ATC she made for me, which leans against the frame on my desk as it waits for me to find a frame the right size for it. These colorful, joyous mushrooms are beautiful and named "Candy Mushrooms" by the artist. I can't get over the shading that gives them such realistic shape and depth, or the way she blended the colors. They're freakin' delightful and I love them.
Thank you, Shellie! I drew some pictures for you many months ago and have fin-all-y put them in the mail to you today. I LOVE YOUR ART, LADY!
