"Wow, I just found out that this group exists and hasn't had a posting since 2013 (almost 8 years ago). Ironic that it's, "Is this still active?".
I have a small collection of children's art; art made by nieces/nephews…"
"We're still enjoying a reduced rate for domestic postcards, though. Most countries don't offer this. Our reduced rate for International postcards went away years ago. Makes us folks who use older stamps on Mail Art have…"
"After its initial purchase at face value, it was next sold for 6 shillings or about $1.50 US in 1873. When it sold in 1970 it was only $280,000. The $8.3 million realization is less than it achieved earlier and about half what some…"
The usual reasons: it's truly democratic (if you ignore the poor folks who don't have mail service) and it is NECESSARY for my soul to create/share art in such a fashion. I can't quite put a finger on why I went from collecting stamps to making my own stamps when in my early teens thinking I was the only weirdo on the planet to do such a thing.
I mainly take photos using the traditional method on black and white negatives (medium format, e.g. 6x9 or 6x6 cm), and the prints are made in the darkroom on photographic paper. For the purposes of the blog, there are also scans from negatives. I use old cameras, sometimes even 100 years old (eg Kodak Brownie).
But for the purposes of the blog, I also sometimes use electronic devices, without modifying the image made.
Hi Bradford, thanks for the info but I had his address on the map, I just thought he was there. I wanted to thank him directly for his two postcards. I hope to have one from you soon ^^ see you soon. Greetings, sandra
I don't know if I can comment on your comment so I'm commenting here...
Thanks for checking out my site. It's interesting because I was thinking about changing my views on watercolor. I've started doing more planned-out semi- traditional work with them lately and I might like it. Still not sure though. I'd strongly recommend playing with them at any rate. Just jump right in! Whether it's a pan of crayola watercolors or a single tube of Windsor and Newton, just do it!
Funny that you just left Austin so recently. I hope life is good in Deadwood. At least people know how to deal with winter up there...
Hi Bradford! I will do my best to bore you about typography and margins! Nice items you have (in a nice rustic setting)! I have to figure out this IUOMA interface, but I'm excited to be here and part of the community. I learned about it from my friend Mim.
