Mail art calls are a great way to stretch myself, to let go of my inner sensor and just run with the first thing that comes to mind.
It’s the most freeing thing I do in the studio. Suffice it to say, it doesn’t happen as often as I might like.
This week, I finally had some time to get down to work on a mail art call from Moan Lisa, whose theme was Two Women.
The imagery of the collage came together quite serendipitously. As you can imagine, I was ecstatic over that development and my mind played as I cut and glued, coming up with a tale to accompany the piece. Combining my two strengths in this way happens far less than you might think. Below, you’ll find the result of my efforts. Your thoughts are most welcome.
The story is micro-flash fiction, that is to say it’s less than one hundred words in its entirety. Enjoy!
Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
