My PostCrossing wall
I'm compulsively conscientious -- if you don't receive something I've promised to send, please let me know!
I love mail art and "naked" postcards, especially hand-made and vintage ones. I spend a lot of time in art museums communing with Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Surrealist, and Expressionist artists. Some of my favorites are Cezanne, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, and Joseph Cornell. I enjoy drawing and painting (gouache, watercolor, acrylics) and very much like the work of Maira Kalman, R. Crumb, Paul Madonna, Steve Mumford, and a slew of sketchbook practitioners. Danny Gregory is an inspiration. And Lynda Barry is a goddess.
Genealogy and history intrigue me. As I get older, the arc of time becomes more personal, and I want to know more about everything.
I don't watch much TV and I'm not religious. Cute sets my teeth on edge.
