Da wächst ja ein Baum im Haus! Ein Baumhaus? Er sieht so schön filigran aus. Dann genieße den Sommer und viel Spaß bei den Kurztrips!

Hallo Charlotte,

danke für den fleißigen Bauern. Der wartet jetzt nur noch auf den ersehnten Regen. Ich finde es toll, wie du die ganzen Formen aus den gegebenen Klecksen herausgearbeitet hast. Wenn man das Haus und die Bäume gefunden hat, mag man gar nicht denken, dass das alles nur zufällig entstanden ist. - Danke!

hi charlotte, was that the mail with the announcement for the show you had? i think that was the last mail i had from you. hopefully it'll still reach me if it was sent after that. mail service from here to germany is supsended, but you may have been able to send mail this way for longer before mail out of germany was supsended. let me know if it ends up returned to you and i'll let you know if anything shows up.

Guten Tag, Charlotte!

On Monday I mailed to you some new mail art, two sheets of the latest series of "Ticket! Ticket!" artistamps. Please let me know what you think about them. Also, my email address is changing - I will send you the new address in the next several days. Take care and stay well! ~ Jack @ Cascadia Artpost

i've only now seen your comment charlotte. i'm glad the little zine arrived safely. no, they don't really have mail art at that gallery as it's a commercial gallery(work for sale), but it is where we hold a cut and paste collage night once a month. i often bring in mail art to show my friends who own/run the gallery. i think you'd like the work that just opened there today. textile work. some really wonderful work too.

Thanks, I love your coral reef, so happy! We are staying well, you do too!! It is so strange, the streets are empty, little traffic on our street, which is usually very busy. The elementary school teachers send out a request to the kids in the area, to make signs and stand outside yesterday around 1 pm. The teachers got in their cars and drove around the neighborhood honking horns and waving at the kids standing in the front yards. I thought that was pretty cute! I don't have young kids anymore, but I stood on the porch, it was pretty fun for the kids!-Take care!!

Hi Charlotte!  So nice to hear from you & know my mail reached you intact.  The window in the envelope is something I’ve seen others do, and once in a while, the right image shows up for the right “window”.  That’s how the cat came to be in your envelope!  The stamps I found on my recent trip to Arizona and New Mexico.  Roberto and I were driving across the desert wide open spaces, which are interrupted Every hour or so by a small dusty town.  We would stop to stretch our backs and legs, and I would hurry in to the thrift store to look for collage supplies.  There in the middle of the desert I found a big stack of old German stamps.  I bought a few pages of the ones I liked best.  Funny how things from around the world end up so far away in a dusty, musty shop.  Roberto said he had to leave the shop because it smelled so bad in there.  Please don’t rush to send something back.  I hope retirement I leaving you with LOTS of creative energy.  Hugs to you.  Take good care of yourself and your husband.   Xoxo, Debra

Oh, ich liebe deine Karte mit dem Fördertum! Da passt einfach alles zusammen. Graue Industrie trifft Farbe und Blumen. Und die unterschiedlichen Texturen... Einfach klasse, danke!

Naja, ich habe etwas geschummelt da ich etwas vorgearbeitet habe. Jetzt bin ich quasi schon durch damit. Lass dir Zeit, viel Spaß mit den Büchern!

Charlotte,

I am glad you like the Moticos. I might start a new series later this year. As for Vostell, some years ago I purchased a book documenting his art, "Automobile", in German and English. Today (Wednesday) I shall send you some mail art inspired by Vostell that I am sure you will enjoy.

Best wishes for your exhibition!

Charlotte,

To answer your question about Olympia: Our city of about 60,000 residents is one of three cities (the others being Tumwater to the south and Lacey to the east) that comprise an urban area of about 120,000 people on the southern edge of the Seattle metropolitan area. Olympia is the capital of the state of Washington and has the State Capitol building and about half the state offices, the others being in the other two cities. State government and a state college are the biggest employers, we have little industry here so growth is slower than in the rest of the metropolitan area and less expensive to live, though housing prices have increased over the last 5 years. Farmland and forest are only 15 minutes away to the south and west of us. A large military base to the north separates us from the main metropolitan area. We are a 2-hour drive and 130 miles from Portland, Oregon to the south, but the travel time is the same or longer (in the afternoon/evening 3-4 hours) to Seattle north of us even though it is only 70 miles away from Olympia - the traffic is terrible on the only freeway I-5 and the public transportation options are inadequate. (I lived in Seattle for 35 years) However, we like living in Olympia as the cultural center and are only 9 minutes away by car or bus from the center of the city.
