#67 July 2015 Mail Art

Sometimes I try to respond to the ideas I discover in a sender's art work. I saw concepts of beauty, strength and survival in the card from Chambers. So I am adding to the dialog that he started (see posting #65) . Unfortunately this was lost in the mail.

I had not received anything from Connie Jean, a veteran mail artist, for about 2 years and  this arrived in my mail box unexpectedly. It deserved a special response--and was responded to in return.
