Having FUN!

 I sent one or two of my altered landscape postcards to Elke Grundmann, in Germany, over the years. She sent me some in return. I decided to add to her card and return it to her. Maybe she'll alter it again and return it to me.  I added the peeking person.

I had a lot of fun putting together three things.

Sun glasses, lips and hands. These two cards make me smile.  Especially #118 for some reason. Is there one that made you smile more than the other?

As I mentioned before, I was doing a bit of studio cleaning up, and found a couple of Sark sheets  that I couldn't throw away. I sent one to someone with out altering and then decided to make one into an Add and Pass sheet. I hope it gets back to me eventually so I can see what people added to it. Do any of you remember Sark. She was sooo popular for awhile.
 My friend Erni Bär, in Hamburg, sends me collages - 100 years of DADA -  and I've been altering them and returning them to him. He seems to enjoy what I do with them. He posts them on Google + .

Here's his most recent send to me, and what I did with it. I'm pretty pleased with my alteration.

 I'm continuting with my eMail Art. This one is from last week. I'm making frequent use of the cut out ART and the arms.
So here's a photo of the wall at the exhibit at the Guggenheim NYC, where we were a few weeks back. We went up specifically to see two exhibits. DadaGlobe at MoMA and this exhibit.

We were very emotional about it. My husband and I both did our foundation art year together at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Our instructors were people who had studied under Moholy-Nagy at the school he created, The Institute of Design.

Going through the exhibit, we could see how much he influenced our own work. I said to my husband - We're his grandchildren!! Our design lineage. It was quite emotional actually seeing where we came from.
Have you ever had this kind of experience?

My favorite is #118 also. There's something about the expression on that one.
