the museum walls are waiting

This invitation to submit mailart arrived in today's mail. I receive a lot of unsolicited invitations, and I don't often post them if they are from people I don't know-- like this one. But the words "museum walls are waiting..." caught my fancy, and it is a Japan-based mailart call, so I am sharing it with my readers. As you can see, this is not a call for etegami, but for mailart of any format, size, material, or theme. And entries will be displayed in a museum. Grab the ball and run with it-- if you are so inclined. It could be fun.

japanese white-eye

Yes, here in Sapporo we are still buried in snow. But temperatures are rising, and the towering, dingy-white piles are expected to start shrinking fast. Time to paint the Japanese White-eye.  This was custom-designed for a women's group that is holding their annual retreat this weekend.
