I sent Mail Art!

This is my last piece of Mail Art
that I'm sending with the Mail Art group
(run by Sue Emmerson in Australia).

The theme is
'Something Beginning with K.'

My envelope was based on 'The Kiss', a painting by
one of my favourite artists, Gustav Klimt.
I painted the plain envelope with gold and bronze 
acrylic paint, with a bit of red dry brushed 
to add a richer tone.
I drew round and extended the kissing couple,
adding a bit of sparkle to their clothes.

Stunning Jo, I love the dreamy richness of the colour, it seems to glow, flushed from the steamy kiss perhaps.
