In my previous post I mentioned receiving a piece of mail art by fellow artist, Martha Miller.
Following "Mail Art Etiquette" I created something in return!
Here's my mail art to Martha!
I wanted to create something special, eye-catching, and unique!
Still new to the whole mail art scene, I wasn't quite sure what could and could not be mailed. So I decided to stick with a traditional envelope (6" x 9") which I illustrated. Afraid paint would come off too easily, I decided to use waterproof black ink instead.
Here's the back.....
It features a series of phrases written over and over. They read, "Run free. Tears blowing in the wind. Run free. Shine brightly and run free!"
I'm so terrified this is going to get lost in the mail! Or worse yet, some postal employee will just keep it for themselves! Oh, that would make me sooooooo mad!!!
This experience has opened me up to a whole new world! Who knew something so simple as exchanging decorated pieces of mail could be so fun and invigorating?
