"In The Mail"
mixed media on canvas, 36"x24", 2012

Mail Art Meets Mixed Media
This is an interactive piece where all the postcards used were sent to me by other people over two months. In November 2011 I put out a call for postcards to make the first piece for 2012. I had a great response and nearly 100 people sent me postcards. Many even sent more than one. I incorporated postcards from all the individuals who sent them. Quite a few artists sent me printed postcards with their work, and those were included as well. Then there was the handful of amazing, handmade postcards I received from other artists. I didn't want to cut the handmade ones up, but I wanted to use them. For those cards I made color copies and added them to the piece.
