a Strong Organically Grown Woman

Here are 2 more mail art pieces. I like them so much that they may not make into the mail and might just become part of an art journal instead. I loved this woman and had her on the collage first not knowing what I would add. Then I looked at my apple and the lovely pink tape that was wrapped around it caught my eye. I carefully positioned it and realized how fitting the words "organically grown" were then added the lettering after. The silhouette of the warriors in the sunset seemed to want to be on this page because of the background colors. Next the totem image said "me too." When I was looking at the images the idea of all of us coming from Africa came to mind and I added the lettering. I'm very happy with both of these pieces and find that I really enjoy this process.
