"Hello Nancy Bell Scott. Mail art has been dispatched from my address to yours and, by the way, I would be very surprised if you have never been told your name has a ring to it."

"Because of the unusual color combinations and because I love the gestural quality of this. (I forgot to say why "Oh, Mim!")"

"I am grateful for Your publication. I am close to the doctrine of Kurt Schwitters, who taught us to appreciate the daily rubbish that comes together in a whimsical mosaic, capturing a sunny day, already a day gone by."

Not ONE but TWO from Ilya Semenenko-Basin

Very nice and striking collages: Each arrived in Maine about a month after Ilya mailed it. We can't send to him from the U.S., but apparently the U.S.P.S. is fine with receiving from Russia. Many thanks, Ilya -- these are wonderful.See More

Debra sent this in March, but it's still pandemic time here in Maine too, at least for some of us: This is a wonderful, big, and strong piece, and includes the stitching that I appreciate in Debra's multifaceted work. The Lily Tomlin quote is also a beaut (and new to me). Below is the envelope, which shrunk during my attempt to post it here: …See More

"Maybe the fun part of "not caring" about it was the hidden gift here, Laura, which kind of forces exploration. But I love your usual colors too, as you know. It can take courage to post something outside of your usual realm. I often find,…"

"p.s. The flying green stool is a real winner also. (LOL, and I don't say that often.) NYTimes has a climate-change fluff article on making your kitchen more green. That kitchen would fit right in."

Nancy Bell Scott commented on Katerina Nikoltsou (MomKat)'s blog post A poem from New Mexico
"That's IT, her Mona Lisa reticence. I did wonder why she didn't sell in the shop for, what, $1? Because I like her face and think she'd make a good neighbor. Quiet! She turned into a wonderful stamp, Dave. And thanks to Kat too."

Hello Nancy Bell Scott. Mail art has been dispatched from my address to yours and, by the way, I would be very surprised if you have never been told your name has a ring to it.

Thanks Nancy! I've been painting for a long time ... (50 years) but for Mail Art, I used different methods ... Mail Art is a different art ... a big hug, Bruno

mail art to Russia returned by USPS

Posted on April 4, 2022 at 10:33pm 7 Comments

This mail art I sent to Ilya in Moscow two weeks ago was returned today. Not a surprise, as AFTER it was sent google said USPS is not accepting mail from here to there, as of March 11. My fault. I'm posting in case anyone else needs to know. Sorry about this, Ilya, but it's good to see you are receiving mail art from other countries.

Peace…

Top left: Zack, who noticed I'd favorited this in Photos and sent it on, lucky for me. I love its artful liveliness and sense of both celebration AND the relative chaos of life. Yet there is appealing space in it too. It turns out to be even more enjoyable in person.
