Creative Isolation

Limner Mail Art #15, "No Lie"

. . . results in . . .

(BACK)
. . . personal satisfaction . . .
and 
positive self-expression.
It also produces fun postcards.

(Psstt! See the tiny pink and white envie? Hahaha! The message is tucked inside. Now I can send a private message on the back of a postcard.)

One for the road . . .

  8. What wonderful art you've created! I keep planning to create some mailart, but then I never seem to have time. I need to turn everything off, like you did! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Why, thank you kindly 365. I think we often have to make time to do the things we enjoy 'cause we're so busy doing the things we "must."

      Anne Paris calls artistic isolation "creative immersion." When you're really into what you're creating, it comes together super fast. So it doesn't always require a lot of time. I'd like to see your next piece of mail art. :)
