A few months ago I sent a piece to a mail art show in the Netherlands. It was done as a tri-fold self mailer and titled "Self Mailer: Address Unknown." I liked that piece so much that I decided to try to recreate or re-capture it in some way. Didn't turn out exactly as I intended.
On the occasion I try for it, the painterly quality that I admire so much in the work of others eludes me. Anyway, this group of photos shows steps along the way -- gluing, scraping, rearranging, scraping, sanding, glazing and on and on. In the top left corner is the original mail art piece. In the bottom right corner is the final piece.
