Two more lunch break efforts. I did these on Wednesday. I haven't done these kinds of angle shadings since I was in Mr. Cornaby's high school art I class in 1961. It gives the surface a nice touch of visual rhythm. I miss ol' Floyd Cornaby. He was my mentor through four years of high school art and an adviser and critic for a couple of years of my university art adventures. I stayed in touch with him for over 35 years and was able to introduce my first grandson to him before he died at age 93. Good memories of great times.
I made these three envelopes with strips of a single page from a decorating magazine during my lunch break on Tuesday. I added other bits and pieces to them when I had a minute or two. I must have a bit of Expressionism in me, because I can't stand to have shapes not outlined with black or some dark color. I refrained on the first one of these, but it was hard.
We recently had a mailart 365 reunion at our house with andytgeezer, Elena, stripygoose and positively postal. At the end of the night, positively postal left a rubber stamp at our house. Luckily, he also left the enemies that it was originally sent to him in, complete with address and unused stamp. Hurray for those times when the postman doesn't cancel the postage.
A quick Usagi later and it was back in the post
