Saturday, Mail Art, of course, but so much more -

365.3 #225

365.3 #226
 This week, I continued to make water color landscapes for my Mail Art.
#227

#228

#229

Sunflowers on a gray day









I'm playing around with the black ink outlines more freely. Watching how the ink runs.












The runny ink on this one made for some interesting cloud effects. I think I got a bit carried away with the water.










These 3 puffy clouds remind me of the Georgia O'Keefe painting with a sky full of puffy clouds.

While #229 reminds me of the landscapes that I fly over in the middle of the U.S.
We haven't gotten to the pool much, but on one gray day, I got a photo of the sunflowers. it's been very chilly lately.


Here's the shelf. It's not really on this angle.  My little visitor, Ace, and I walked over and added some things that had been sent to me by a mail art friend.






And here's a special treat, our friends had been to Peru, to the Amazon, and brought us an armadillo. It was hand carved in one of the villages that they visited.

Here's Bizoo in one of his yoga poses. This one is called - "kitty loses his head."


And here's our little Zinn, showing off her superlative skeletal form. And in the dark - it glows! Pretty cute, right?

Who needs to wait for Halloween to dress in a costume? Not us!

I just stumbled across your blog this morning - after a web search for images of Travel Art Kits sent me to your post from March 14th, 2011. I am so incredibly inspired by your work! I've been making an Art Card a day for almost a week - as a personal exercise - without even searching for anyone else doing this sort of thing. Then I happen across you!! Know that you are a light in this world. I'd love to exchange addresses! XO!
