Mail Art

Such an exciting post day!

A couple of weeks ago I decided to take part in the wonderful mail art exchange over at the wonderful Mindy Lacefield's blog. Mindy was offering a piece of her original art in exchange for one of yours and having long been an admirer of her heart swelling, whimsical work I just had to take part. I sent off a painting of Benito the Bunny - a character I love painting

Benito and his Brass Buttons
you can also see him here on Mindy's blog and today I recieved my mail art from Mindy

How completely wonderful is this!! My breath has been taken :)

Mindy is still running her mail art exchange so I would recommend wholeheartedly that you join in. I was pretty nervous as I love painting so much but have never had any formal training in painting so I can easily convince myself that what I do is wrong or not good and sending my art to someone who I admire so much was quite a leap of faith but I'm so glad I did it, it was such a lot of fun :)
