I have always loved mail (real mail). I love the idea of mail, I love stamps, I love the fact that you can drop something in a box and the Postal Service will see that it is delivered to its intended destination. As a way of indulging my own enjoyment of the process and concept of mail, and on the assumption that other people feel at least a little of that excitement when receiving personal mail, I began a Postcard Project a number of years ago. I like the idea that these small pieces of art are seen by not only the intended recipient, but also by everyone who handles it on the way, so, except for entries into official shows, I stamp and mail them. I consider the stamp, the cancellation marks, and the wear and tear they experience are all a part of the piece. They are not precious commodities, just little pieces of art that I send out into the world.
