your REAL wall by mim4art – 01 Feb 2011

Mim has been a supporter of my REAL wall for a long time, sending her first REAL wall back in August 2009.

One of the first members of mailart365, Mim’s output is prolific, to the point that I measure what number I’m supposed to be on by what number she’s on (which usually has a suffix after it, like 63a, 63b, 63c as she is doing mailart1000 it seems!)

Here’s Mim’s latest REAL wall, covered with mailart365 gems, including one of Elena’s quilled pieces, Spring Blossom. In amongst all those, I can spot a Katerina Nikoltsou, Red Letter Day, Dewi and many other superstars of mailart!

Mim4Art your REAL wall November 2010

Mim has been a long time contributor to my REAL wall and is a co-conspirator when it comes to mailart talks. It was partly because of her that I started giving lectures in mailart, so I thought it was only right to send a postcard to her designed by my students from my mailart lecture.

The big green Male art card in the centre was drawn by one of my students in a recent lecture. She had assuemd that my talk was going to be on MALE art as opposed to female art (or mailart) and hence the pic.

Nice to see it made it up on to Mims REAL wall all the way over there in Richmond, VA.

Here’s what Mim has to say about the whole thing:

My REAL wall is a jumble. I hesitate to remove anything because it’s like a house of cards with one thing propped on another’s pushpin or sharing pins. Plus, I like looking at things for a long time, remembering who sent them to me, like the little Dutch shoes, or keep things at hand like my MimPost stamps or the collage going into an exhibit.

One day, I’ll take it all down and start fresh, or not.
