Mail Art Monday*

Some friends of mine were recently married so I decided to include some advice on the piece of mail art I made to send their card.  (Oh how I love advertisements from the 60's)

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?

*I know that technically today is Tuesday but these files made it very clear to me they were NOT to be uploaded yesterday.

Where have I been? (Part 5)


Earlier this month I spent some time in SE Alaska.  Below are my (clickable) sketches from the different places I visited.

Juneau - July 4th
Juneau - July 4th
Glacier Bay
Ketchikan - July 7th
Ketchikan - July 7th

I do not work on a sketch once I leave a location and prefer to leave them unfinished to be a more accurate record of the time spent there.  Sometimes a sketch will develop into another more developed piece later on but for me the main purpose of sketching is to help me remember an experience.

MATERIALS: Baron Fig sketchbook (www.baronfig.com), HB graphite, ballpoint pen, Greenleaf & Blueberry watercolor (https://www.etsy.com/shop/GREENLEAFblueberry)
