New on the block for me is Anete Ulmane from Riga, Latvia.  This one is called; "Trashpo n° 3".  WOW , if this is N° 3, I can't wait to see what N° 99 will look like.

   It has nearly everything you could ask for in a Trashpo piece.  Tickets, birth control pill packages, cardboard, tissue from a dress, sewing, tea packaging, a hand written letter (remember those?), magizine cut outs, and what I really love is a "waiting line ticket * " n° 146.  (* Not sure what they are called.)   Does anyone collect waiting line tickets?

Bravo & Thank you Anete, you're on my list.  Now all I have to do is take a walk in Paris to see what this day gives, and try to put it together as well as this one.

Most of it is in place by sewing, and some glue.  I have it up on my desk now and can't stop looking at it.

Fantastic piece! Is this all glued down ?It looks like a trash diary documenting a week - love it!

Pour yourself into your work is the best way forward.  Enjoy your student life, it goes by too fast.

Yes, I can see from your notes that the church is built on the site of the palace of Bishop Albert of Riga and was started in 1234.  But then the church suffered severe damage in Riga's great city fire of 31 May 1677, but was repaired, with a new spire.  Good Luck with your studies.

But speaking about those pills, that was my main doubt object.  I have thought about how much personal art I can afford. But eventually I realized that personal and intimate art means more to the recipient. Only it means a deep exposure of sender's personality and soul.

I'm very happy that you like it! But my handwritten text - it isn't a letter but a pieces from lecture notes. I'm studying art history and there are too much notes. Your piece is about Saint John church in my hometown Riga. :)
