Some mail Art

This is the reverse of the sunflower piece I sent to a mailart call in Ukraine, It’s organized by Roman Golub (no relation) I sent in an envelope not knowing how long it would be in transit and I didn’t want it to get beat up. 
I used a photo I’d taken at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art in the summer and extended it using Derwent Inktense pencils. I hope it arrives safely. 
I altered a postcard of a planet using circles and lining up the “images” on them to the edges of the planet. I liked how it turned out. 

 A friend added to my collection of old postcards and another friend sent me a note on the back of a page from a vintage book about mushrooms. One seemed appropriate for altering the postcard. It made me laugh and I hope the recipient laughs too. 

We need more laughter these days. What makes you laugh?

Perforated photos (more of them)

 Diana Hale, perforator extraordinary, Mailartist, sent me perforated photos. I have no idea who these people are. But they are no longer as close as they used to be. The blue dots are an homage to John Baldessari.

Perforated photos

 A mailart friend, Diana Hale, offered to perforate some photos for me. I sent her old photos we had, who we couldn’t identify. They came from my husband’s family. And She returned them plus a few more from her own stash. They were fun to play with. I call the series “They had been closer in the past’

two zines

 I’ve a renewed interest in these small zones. Probably because of the group on IUOMA. Photos out of order, oh well.

I like to amuse myself

 I was lucky to received some “embellished” by Ken Brown postcards and I further embellished/altered them. One is an homage to John Baldessari

Time flies by…

 During this never ending pandemic, I’m still having the sense of time as no time, though I have a schedule I created by belonging to book clubs and PostcardstoVoters groups. Thanks to Zoom! But day to day it become a blur of days. I’m lucky to have my little studio. 

A finch eating sunflower seeds from a flower head. 
Sunflowers growing along walkway at museum. 
A recently complete mural by two wonderful local artists. The building is a dance studio. 
An example of the postcards I write to get out the voters. And a  card I recently mailed out. I’m thinking a lot about peace. Peace inside myself, peace in my country, peace for Ukraine, and what is so hard about being peaceful!?  I think about that.
