Handpainted Note cards

October 14, 2010


I have been in note card mode once again. I have been painting cards  for 20 years  ever since I was in a IS mail art coop. We had members coast to coast which I have since lost contact with all of them. We mailed outlandish shaped cards and postcards to see what the postal service would deliver.  Back then they did very sculptural, sewed torn paper, wired, computer chips, heavily hotglued texture then painted. It was divine and I was hooked not only to make but receive hand painted cards not reproduced hand painted (way too hallmarkish). Now, I do water color painted paper cut into geometric shapes and compositions attached to backing stiff paper.  Pics will follow.
