Post Card To Self / Key West - Ft. Lauderdale To NYC

Somewhere along the way I decided to send myself postcards from the vaious places I've visited over the years including: China, Thailand, Italy, France, Puerto-Rico and all over the U.S. This last week while in Florida I brought along a bunch of post cards to mail out to others as well as myself. It was a great way to relax and do a little no-stress art while vacationing. The version of the card I sent to myself includes the original linocut with some color pencil added and a watercolor image of the ocean and clouds I was admiring while sitting under a palm tree in a state park on the tip of Key West. I also added some collage work from the map we got at the guest house we stayed in, in Key West. The concierge scribbled so many directions on the map it was virtually impossible to discern what he talked about when he was giving us tips on where to go, what to eat, the best beach...... I also added some watercolor and peeled away some layers of the card later while in Ft. Lauderdale.

I still have 4 more cards left, if you're interested in receiving one, let me know. Otherwise they'll be buried in a pile in my studio and lost forever.

Heading To Ft. Lauderdale For 10 Days

Hey Friends/Visitors -

I just wanted to let everybody know that I'm heading out of town for a late summer vacation. If you happen to send something in the mail during that time, I obviously will not be able to add it to this blog or reply via mail until my return.

While in Florida, I'll be sending out return posts to anyone I've rcv'd mailart from and have not yet replied too. Since my schedule has been so insane this past few weeks, there's quite a stack of replies I need to get in the mail. The fun thing is that you guys will be getting something special, a little dif. than my usual "Portrait" mailart reply cards.

Have a great week, I know I will.
