Great Amy, I will put you on the list for a copy! And your enthusiasm is great!

I have put the catalogue for the Maritime Mail art exhibitions online:


I regret that I had to choose one (or in some cases a few smaller) images of what you sent me.  The catalogue was made manually in Indesign and as it was it was a long undertaking... so sorry, but it's the best I could do this time.  You can see everything on the blog:


I am planning to make some printed copies of the catalogue.  I will send it to the printer once I correct everything - there are bound to be errors, so if you find any,  please let me know and I will amend them. If you want a printed copy, let me know, although there may be a small cost this time.

Thanks again for your support!

Rebecca--Thank you for posting this entry. Of particular note is the envelope painting that is topped off by a serendipitous finding of the 1962 Winslow Homer commemorative stamp, "Breezing up", based on his 1876 painting. I had finished the watercolor pencil sketch and the stamp surfaced as I was trolling through my husband's stamp stash--it was the perfect finishing touch for the Maritime entry. 

Thank you, too, for all your work to make the 2 mail art exhibitions a reality!
