The whale that went swimming

whale mail large


My mail art friend Sherry Harmes of Amook Island Creations in Alaska was sad to report that this mail art envelope I sent to her was delivered drenched in water. The long postal journey is part of the risk of sending art through the mail. The watercolour painting inside was well protected by plastic wrap and tape. I sent her an email and advised she try to iron the envelope because many times art on paper can be smoothed out with a clothing iron. Truth is, I iron way more art than clothes…

    Oh my gosh! A ‘story’ that ends well. How awesome is that. …a whale connoisseur.
