    my folks are on holiday atm, and i just received these lovely handpainted postcards from them:

    got me thinking it might be a nice thing to do here: using a similar method to the urburn cd exchange thing in the music forum - anyone interested would pm me with their address, which will then be anonymously passed on to one other person also involved. then everyone do a postcard and post it.

    anyone interested?

    Me! Great idea. Would they have to be hand painted, or would it be OK to send one with a written note on back of why chosen?

    yep. i wouldn't want to be prescriptive of what counts as art - painting, collage, found objects, photos, whatever.

    could probably do with a few more people signed up mind...

    Fwiw, I think one rule should be that your submission shouldn't be in an envelope - any postal mishaps then become part of the art - how do people feel about that?
