I have been mailing a piece of art to two different artist/friends, whose work I admire, and they also mail work to me. For the first month I mailed a piece every day, now I mail approximately one a week. These are vehicles for new directions. It is exciting to complete a piece of art quickly and exciting to receive art in the mail. This method of working has branched out in to making more complicated collages.
