Mail art – one of the things I love

October 18th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments


If you are so fortunate as to get personalized mail from me, it probably won’t look like a plain white envelope with a generic stamp on it. It will probably involve at least 4 stamps, and if I have any time at all, it will also involve watercolor paint, crayons or color pencils. Sometimes, for fun, I also make postcards. When I design a card or an envelope, I want it to be happy and bright. Sometimes it’s silly, sometimes it’s sublime, but I guarantee that none of my envelopes or postcards will be mistaken for a bill!

The first image was done with colored pencils, the second; watercolors. The reference to the painting of the chestnuts was a leaf from my own chestnut tree and some nuts that my Calabrian cousins sent me home with.

    I was fortunate indeed to receive the vase postcard – it is quite lovely!

    …to be sung…

    Send me a postcard,
    Send it by mail,
    Send it care of,
    The Birmingham Jail.
    Okay, knock of the silliness. Your art is incredible, Mimi!
