Mail art.

For the last few years I have been involved  in variety of mail art exchanges through the wonderful art community on http://www.atcsforall.com/. Artists trade ATCs, chunky book pages (4x4in), Art post cards, Art dolls, etc. Currently I am hosting a Fat book pages Hand painted “Winter scenery” SWAP there.

The idea of the SWAP is to collect miniature art samples from different artists and to share our techniques / unique styles with each other. Page size is 5×4 in with the actual painting 4x4in (1in margin on the left side is needed for binding these pages into book).  The term “Fat book” was already used in the website, but I did not find any specific descriptions of this miniature art book category through the internet research.

Right now my Fat book has 17 pages and is getting fatter . For the pages SWAP each artist has to create 3 pages-original paintings in certain medium / given theme.

My 2 finished pages for Winter scenery  SWAP were done in acrylics. I decided to paint all 5x4in surface, even only 4x4in square is required to be as a finished art sample. You will see why.
