I've been admiring the art of Vivienne Straus through Flickr for quite a while now. I love her paintings. The style somehow reminds me of Charlotte Salomon. Although Charlotte Salomon's work is a bit heavier, but she lived during the second world war, so no wonder. So when Vivienne offered to do a mail art swap last week, I jumped at the chance. I was working against a deadline and finished work for that yesterday. The first thing on my (mental) list to do was to start making some mail art. I also thought BricolageLife would enjoy some swapping of mail art and when I asked her, she did!
Several years ago I used to do a lot of mail art swaps and other round robins. Unfortunatly not everybody holds their end of the deal and a lot got lost, so I sort of stopped doing it.
Now that I've done these I remember how much fun it is. I use my watercolours for journalling, but swapping art is a different fun altogether.
