IN EXCHANGE: Artist Trading Cards, Post Cards or Mail Art

I've joined forces again with high school art instructor Barbara Burns of Athabasca Alberta Canada in her mailart project titled "In Exchange".

The following 4 cards are being sent to the following students who shared their artwork with me: Shandelle Haub, Lizzie Barore, Paul Malcolm and Shayna Gambler.

I often times wonder how many of the hundreds of postcards I've sent out over the past couple of years actually make it to theire destination and how many become casualties to the US Postal Service. It was quite a surprise when yesterday I opened up the mailbox and discovered a returned postcard from my "Portrait" series but not nearly as big of a surprise as when I discovered that I had sent the postcard out on October 7th, 2007. Almost 11 months to the date. I figure since it was going to a P.O. Box, the recipient must have moved or never paid her box fees and eventually the mail got sent back. But, almost 1 year later, WOW!!! If anyone reading this happens to have a current return address for Ms. Monica Rex, let me know, I'd love to slap a stamp on this and resend.
