A lucky talisman from Coralette Damme (St. Petersburg, Florida, USA)

Mail-art by IUOMA member Coralette Damme (St. Petersburg, Florida, USA)

April 21, 2014 - I was thrilled to receive mail-art from Coralette Damme. I am no stranger to various forms of wildlife but cannot recall any recent bear sightings. Fortunately, this bear is meant to bring luck; and I feel lucky indeed to have received it. In fact, I thank my lucky (red) stars! This is a slightly over-sized postcard format with a beautiful, textured print. A talisman for good luck is magical energy for the Eternal Network. I am honored to be the recipient and feel a positive boost as a result.

I look forward to receiving more work and learning more about Coralette Damme. Adding a magical bear to the Mink Ranch menagerie seems perhaps not logical but fitting. I’ve become so accustomed to anti-art and abstraction that something that might be considered representational (even if expressionist) seems exotic and a breath of fresh air, as an occasional change of perspective can be quite liberating.

A visit to Coralette Damme’s website and blogs is likely to illuminating:

Yes, very interesting work & the bear probably has some significance greater than I understand.
