I had submitted a
print edition of 10 and received 8 back (see my post Lambada). IPE keeps one
for their archives and one is available for purchase. If it sells, it
will cover my entrance fee for next year.
My new mailbox was
finished just in time to give a nice safe place for the red package
to wait. (see Special Delivery)
I LOVE THEM!! Every
one of them is wonderful. I especially like the white one.
It is difficult to see in my photo, but it is an embossed foot print.
Charming! And there is one named 'Trolls'... I love trolls! It is as
if they knew.
artists who made my prints are: Hélène
Bautista (France), Alex J. Gardner (U.K.), Hester Cox (U.K.), Alan
Jenkins (U.K.), John Pindar ( U.K.), Amy Brannan (U.K.), Norah
Brennan (Ireland), and Carol Pairaudeau (U.K). Thank you all... they
I wish I could frame
them all but, although they are a small 5 ½” square, I don't
have the room. I live in a small place. But it is to my advantage
that they are all the same size image. I plan to cut a mat for a
frame and alternate prints so that I can enjoy them throughout the year.
I would love to go
to the exhibit opening but... England is a little far away. So I will
be here, in Independence, Oregon, U.S.A, enjoying the fact that I am
part of such a great fun project.
This is IPE's 7th
exchange and I am really quite impressed with the organization of the
project. They labelled every print (on the glassine sleeves) and I
even have a list of the people who received my print. I have read on the IPE Facebook page that there will be a poster and later a
book available for purchase and I will be ordering them!
I am already
thinking of ideas for next year's entry...
