Another beautiful tree scene from Irene. I love the way she uses color! Thanks, Irene!

Carroll always finds the most amazing material for mailart from places like library dumpsters. This one is for the food/recipe mailart call.

For my food/recipe mailart call, this mailart depicting a juicy red apple comes with a recipe for baked apples. Thanks, Robin!

A watercolor done entirely with a palette knife, this gentle winter scene from Colorado is reminiscent of my beloved home island of Hokkaido. Thank you so much, Bill!

Painted onto a piece of corrugated cardboard, these tomatoes are no doubt meant for my Tomato Etegami call, and will eventually be posted along with the other tomato card submissions on my Etegami blog in mid-April. But the material and the style are so unlike traditional etegami, I thought it would be happy being posted here with the mostly non-Etegami mailart in the meantime. Thanks Anne!!

Oooo. A Valentine Card drawn with Red Beet Juice! Too cool for words. I'll have to add this idea to my etegami post about drawing with coffee. This card comes with a recipe for my food/recipe mail art call. It took some time to reach me, but what a thrill to receive it! Thanks, Richard.

Yun sent two beautiful cards depicting tomatoes, but one is specifically for my tomato etegami call and I'm saving it to display it in mid-April on my Etegami blog along with all the other tomato-themed submissions. Thanks, Yun!


Collage card from Lutin. Thanks, Lutin!

For the food-themed mailart call, a softblock print with etegami-style simplicity and a recipe for Beets in Vinaigrette.

Title: Junkyard Fairy. Another eye-popping mailart from Test Tower's kaleidoscopic world.

The print has a mysterious, metalic shimmer that is quite fascinating.

This card has the feel and smell of an oil painting. My address is written on both sides of the card, but the postage stamp is on the artwork side, so the cancellation mark spreads right across the top of the artwork!
