Mail Call: autumn colours


In October of 2006 I made this Autumn Colours Deco and sent it into the world for others to complete the pages as part of a Yahoo art group. 15 months later it came back to me, ironically on a 60+ degree New York City day in January that felt much more like autumn than winter.



The book was filled with handmade pages depicting the vivid colors of autumn -- rich rusts, oranges, browns, golds, greens, and yellows -- and was completed by artists in the United States, West Indies, France,and Norway. This mosaic image includes details from the pages. Thanks go out to Melody, Linda, Mishko, Jenny, Camille, Virginie, Karoline, and Pat for their creative work.

I always make a sigh of relief when I see a deco make it way back to their owner. Homer's are grand.

What pretty colors. Everyone did a a very nice job capturing fall.

The photographs have such wonderful textures and patterns. I love the way they all look together! Will you think about doing this project in 2008?

Your Autumn Colors Deco idea was wonderful... love the colors and the concept... the grid of photos of the other's work is really beautiful and well done. SO glad I stumbled onto your site, via Michelle Ward's site! All the best, K.
