You just know that it is a packet full of wondrous treasures from Cheryl Penn:

And it is....poetry, art, ...and Zine #2: The World a Town!

Oh, just enjoy the images...

 words fall short to describe Cheryl Penn's beauties:

I have been to the Serengeti, and this brought back memories of adventures and warm sunsets:

Cut-up #19 and Cut-up # 8...a World of cut-ups:

I should like to collect ALL of Cheryl's cut-ups,

but I will have to check the archives

to see just how many are in the "SA Collection" so far :-)

Thank you, Cheryl, for beautiful moments xxx

I am so happy that Cheryl can work on 8 paintings at once! (Wow, I have space to do only 2 or 3 :-) But imagine how many "cut-ups" can be made from 8 painting? I think one of the FIRST mail art cut-ups was Pollock???

Hello again :-) - as I find lecturing the same thing over and over again - unless its factual (Renaissance) boring,  I do ad hoc speaking about my own work, working off images only -  so there are no notes to send.  I'm sorry about that :-( - all I can say is that I work at least 7 times over an image, building it up slowly, and as SLOWLY is not my favorite thing, work on as many as 8 paintings at once. And Nancy, you're right - the MINUTE an idea hits I leave whatever I''m doing (even at work), and go to the studio and make it.  Its a frustrating way of working, but hugely productive. Frustrating because boring things like marking fall behind    :-))0!  And then I HAVE to do that at 12pm! And in case you're interested - I also work on paper pulp. This is sheets of pulp pressed prior to being re-pulped and additives (kaolin/gum etc)  added and it becomes commercial paper.  Its fragile but strong - no water can be used, but it responds well to oil paint.  And thats me :-) - thanks for asking X

Claire, I've always wished the same thing. Sometimes I ask Cheryl to send me one of her educational lectures, which must be stupendous, but she doesn't write them beforehand. Just thinks incessantly, no doubt, and then creates them on the spot.

I keep coming back to the "My Mail Art World..." really sends me...It's so atmospheric. (Makes me wonder technically too - wish I could take a class w/ you Cheryl!)

Wow, beautiful indeed Cheryl! You're truly something else...

Comment by Nancy Bell Scott on August 30, 2012 at 1:39am

It's been said, but WOW.

"When I was young" :-)))!!! Today I know that feeling... Wonderful photograph.  Africa is a beautiful place I have to say. Often during travels I have thought it would be nice to live here, or there, but 'they' say Africa is in ones blood. I have to say I agree. The sound of the migrating herds is a cacophony indeed. As is the quietness.  Thanks for posting - I'm relieved to see that some of the Zines are reaching their destinations.  Its been a privilege to receive all the wonderful work.  On that note - there are more pages arriving for another Mail Art Makes the World a Town.  So I might have to squeeze another between Asemics and Vispo - lets see which is filled first :-))XX

I'll say, Cheryl is Cool!, too! :-)

Remembering the Serengeti ...'twas a looong time ago, and I was young :-)

(that's a tranquilizer gun, the only "shooting" was with cameras)

Thnks for the memories, Cheryl!
