Mail art will be coming your way within the next 4-6 weeks.

PS: Liked what you entered in the RAG Mail Art exhibit.

HC--thanks of posting about the Richmond Art Gallery. It is an amazing response and wonderfully installed. The documentation is outstanding--I'm glad that I participated. Hope all is well with you.

Hi THC--I had a similar problem last year and had to take time off too. So do not worry about sending me something--whenever you get around to it will be fine. If you need to beg off completely, that is OK too, I understand. 

The most important thing is to take care of yourself.

Hi Hairy--How wonderful that you have engaged with the mail art community in your area. Your analog/digital collage is awesome! The idea of having the digital images contained within the components on the analog postcard is unique. Although some have painted/collaged CDs and sent them thru the mail, a somewhat similar concept. No rush on sending me mail art, I'll be on hiatus from mail art for a few weeks. I'll be giving attention to house and husband after the flurry of preparing an IUOMA display for an event tomorrow.

PS: Thanks for showing your studio--there is an IUOMA group for such photos, in case you have not found it yet.
