Look at this sun-dappled bundle that landed safe and sound in my happy mailbox this afternoon after a long trek across the country. Oh Sharon Zimmer you are a woman after my own heart sending me those sequins just in time to finish off a piece of mailart I was masterminding. They were the PERFECT fit. You don’t know all the projects I have slated for those old maps! When I turned your lovely and amazing pack of treasure over I saw a map of Panama -land of my childhood. Thank you.
And now for a tiny peek at the mailart that is leaving my spraypaint manicured hands and making it’s way across the California desert, east through Arizona and New Mexico, then following the path of the Rio Grande River, where it will head south for a ways before going back east again straight through Uvalde, Texas, all the way around the Alamo, then right straight through the streets of San Antonio. Please have apples, sugar cubes, prairie grass, alfalfa and oats ready for my ponies. Oh…and plenty of fresh water. Thank you. You know who you are.
I have been besotted with patterns for some time now – the busier & more intricate the better. The inside of my mind, you see, is covered in a dizzying Moroccan patterned wallpaper. The fact that it’s peeling should concern me, but so far it doesn’t. I’m trusting that the same crew that hung that batch will return to touch things up when the time comes. This page below is from my current visual journal, but when you see my latest mailart pieces you’ll know I’m just one baby step away from needing medication.
