Dear Charlotte.  I am so sorry to hear this.  It may be the first time I know of a piece gone missing from its envelope.  It may be my fault as the large envelope was quite thin and old, and I worried it could “fail”.  I liked the imagery on there and the address window so much I used it anyway.  It is a coincidence that this piece I sent you was a “sister” piece to another similar work, and so I’m thinking of sending you that partner piece.  So sorry that happened. Boohoo.  Xoxoxo, Debra

p.S.  I am so glad your English is soooo good - so that we can exchange these messages and correspondences.  Hope it warms up there soon.  I am busy making experimental prints!

Of course I should have mentioned that we will credit you as the artist, & your name will appear beside your work!  I am co-curating this exhibition with a very young artist who I am just getting to know.  I am trying to let her make most of the decisions, as she has a professional Arts Administration background and works as a gallery director now.  
I will definitely share the call for entries with you as soon as it is finalized.  Hugs and many thanks to you.  Get well soon and take good care of yourself.  Xoxo, Debra

Hello Charlotte! Happy New Year! I was thrilled to receive your gorgeous Christmas card. Thank you so much! I love the print--what a special memory of your travels. And the whole composition with the different materials is so festive. I'm glad you finally moved into your new place. I hope you enjoyed a happy Christmas there. I'm sorry I'm so slow in responding with mail art. Sending something to you very soon. -Nancy

Hi Charlotte,

I was so happy to receive your latest art card! It arrived with only slight damage to the edges. I don't know if the background image is supposed to be a snowy landscape, but that's what it reminds me of, and I love the feeling of white, cold space. Have you moved yet? I want to make sure I reply to the correct address (you included it on the card). 

I hope all is well. Thank you so much!

I received your mail art!! I looked up frottage because I am not familiar with it. I've seen Max Ernst's work. I like the way it is abstract but the realistic bird adds some stability to it.

Hi Charlotte! I'm glad that the card made it to you (it always seems like a miracle when a piece of mail can reach its destination 1/2 way around the world). Thank you so much for your kind words. I took a calligraphy class when I was about 12 years old, but not since. I've always loved to practice hand-writing. California is in a terrible draught right now, though that is not unusual. However, to hear about Germany experiencing this climate event is very scary. This seems to be the future we've been warned about. I hope you can stay cool, and that the move goes smoothly. Thank you, again! Nancy

Thank you Charlotte for your quick reply.  I posted it again today.  The postal clerk said the address was too “low” on the envelope for the machine to read it.  Why that took 3 weeks to come back to me, I don’t know.  He scribbled all over the envelope so it looks terrible, but we’ll see if it gets to you.  Good luck packing and sorting through your beloved collections in the studio.  We collage artists are collectors, most of us anyway.  That makes it so hard but in the end your studio will be even more organized and streamlined.  Wishing you a good rest of the summer.  It’s been so hot here I am ready for the season to transition to autumn.

Sending you fat hugs too!  Debra

Charlotte! I just went to my post office box and found your fantastic card! I love it--you made my day. Thank you so much! Now I will try to rise to that occasion and make something for you. I hope you're having a good weekend! Nancy

Na das ist doch wieder eine tolle Restekarte. Sieht man ihr nicht an. :) Eine schöne Häuserfront mit einfachsten Mitteln. Und was wohl besonderes an dem Apfel ist? Ein Rätsel.

Hi Charlotte, bei deiner Karte Liegt echt Frühling in der Luft! Ich mag den Druck + die genähten Hafer-Highlights sehr. Ein passender Hintergrund für die Meisen. Dir auch frohe Ostern!

Hi Charlotte, danke für die "aufgeräumte" Restekarte. Reste können auch sehr inspirierend sein. Und die roten + goldenen Highlights bringen das gewisse Etwas mit rein, toll.

Hi Charlotte, erst mal danke für deine klasse Weihnachtskarte. Die mag ich total, so schön knallig. Deine neueste Karte ist auch wieder super. So viele unterschiedliche Schichten. Auch die Haptik ist schön glatt. Meine Acrylfarbe ist dabei immer so rau am Ende.

Hi Charlotte, 

when I have time I try to make black and white prints from negatives myself. I work mainly on black and white negatives in 6x6 or 6x9 cm format and I use old cameras. Some are even almost 100 years old, such as the Kodak Brownie No2, an old box camera of the simplest design.
The effects of these photographic activities can be seen partly on my blog:

Warm greetings
