Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
My profile photo is part of an artcard I did a few years ago called "Delicate Bridges." It is worked in watercolor on the back of a piece of yellow invoice paper. Since the invoice paper is very thin (what was I thinking?), the finished watercolor is mounted on a piece of heavy watercolor paper.

Sometimes my art is a little serious, sometimes dopey. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference. I love sending and receiving the kind of mail that creates happiness.

Following-up on Toni's '?' . . . still involved in mailart? I've not been good at keeping up with everybody and my mailings have been sporadic . . . so please excuse my cluelessness for having to ask.

This arrived in my mailbox this past weekend. It was tied with baker's twine and sealed with coppery sealing wax. Separate panels are hinged along one edge to flip open as pages of a book. Completely amazing and so exciting to receive from someone unknown to me until that moment. After a little investigation, I discovered she is part of the PAINTING+DRAWING=MAIL ART group (which I have now joined). Part of their mission is to find and connect mail artists who use painting and drawing in…

What is Mailart?

One of the things I like best about mailart is that it isn't just one thing, and the only one who sets the rules is the USPS and ourselves. There's always something new to fiddle with. Or, I can forget about it for a few days and fit in a nap somewhere. Tonight I started to paint some envelopes that I'm recycling for a 'bad poetry' mail-out. After about the third mess, I stopped and just thought about it for a minute. I realized I really didn't want to do it. I wanted to create, but I was…
