Do we call this art or is it simply trash? In case of trahspo it’s both! I’m not much of a trashpo-artist but sometimes even I like to save something from the garbage can to incorporate it into my art. In this piece of mail art I made my fair lady wear a candy wrapper dress ; )
The recipient of “THE green DRESS” is Viviana from Argentina. I hope she doesn’t mind me sending her trash ^^

Spending time with my „American Family“ is always a blast. Just recently we visited a friend of theirs who owns cutting horses. For me and my American family’s current exchange student (a German horse-and-riding-addicted girl like me) it was the first time sitting on a western horse. It was so different from what we are used to. A true thrill ride!
Cutting horse “Woody” and me. Photocourtesy of my amazing American Dad 🙂 Thank you for always taking such great pictures!
And I think the following piece of art goes very well with this very unique experience. It’s my first linocut in about two years: A RODEO-cut.
I’ve sent one of the eleven prints I made to Viviana Cernjul in Argentina. Of course I created a very special envelope for it too. Take a look:
Hopefully I’ll be able to save some more time for blogging in the next couple of weeks: All the exciting things I’m seeing and experiencing during my stay in the US this year have kept me away from the blogosphere quite a lot recently.
P.S. I’ve also acquired a plethora of postcards from five different states already. Finding them is not really easy sometimes. I’ll let you know where I got mine in one of my upcoming posts. Promise : )
This post contains not one but two of Viviana’s cute mail art pieces that she sends on their long way from Argentina to Germany.
First a little “flower-fashionista”…
…and then some mysterious signs, glyphs and symbols 🙂
I hope you like them as much as I do. Thank you Viviana!
