"If trashpo has taught me anything its that every windblown street corner and cyclone fence is a veritable Dick Blick of free art materials."

Thanks for posting. Glad you liked it. I enjoyed your mail art as well.  I have 2 tots that take up most my free time so I have to choose between scanning art or making art,or I would upload what I receive more often

And these tiny scraplet stapled boekie-type wonders from Francis Lamme. Trashpo in my book even though they aren't dirty. They're scraps, and charmed me. Plus I love staples. Francis also included asemics, a very nice two-sided collage, and a meaty letter to be answered soon.

Is it too late? After finally scanning some today I show up to post Jac's trashpo from June 26--and here it is already! Well, I'm posting it again--I really love this thing.

Hey Diane, it's so good to see you! And your found objects, they always get me. Things are, well, of the other items mentioned in that verse, I qualify for love and that's about it. And you? I just might need to send you something, even though I'm slow these days.
