Art through the post

Standard

Forgive me, I’ve been so busy with the organisation of Fakenham Art Biennial that I’ve had less time to show you my lovely mail. The Private view was last night so I can get myself back on track (although It has to be taken down in ten days time)

Here’s a couple of pieces of art I’ve received recently. The first from my dear friend Suzanne in Germany who’s taken lots of time to draw beautiful things for me.

A great Idea though and there is still a chance I’ll get it, as I just received something else that took two and a half months to get to me! 🙂
