I'm not feeling well today. A cold caught up with me on Thursday afternoon and is now quite at home with me. I'm sneezing, and coughing, the usual cold symptoms. I used my day indoors to do lots of Mail Art pieces and used up a lot of colored paper from my stash.
The backgrounds were from large pages from an art magazine that were solid color. A real treat to find them ages ago. I decided to do random color experiments. Not sure what they mean or conclude but fun to do and look at. Very random.
This one had a portion of a quote on it and I like the way it sounded like a poem when I said it out loud, so I left it on the piece.
This is the one I labeled #39, the others are the a, b, c ones of the series. I'm sticking to this method of numbering, I think I like the way it keeps me organized.
This is a special card for my artist/musician friend in Chicago. She said this quote the other day while we were chatting on the phone. I remembered that I had an image of it. Some artist had put it on Two buildings in New York City as an installation piece. Have you read the Jon Kabat-Zinn book by the same name? It was very good.
I'm hoping I'll feel way better tomorrow, though I'll be making Mail Art no matter what.
