Postcard Project 2014: Planting Time

Oh how receiving this made me happy!  
Such creative [and useful] thinking! 
And yes, there are seeds inside. 

[p.s. might I add, that I am long over ole' Martha 
after meeting her sometime in early 2000. . . ]

Postcard Project 2014: No. 3

Ah, in case you are wondering, I believe this is made on cardboard, and the green is [perhaps] tissue paper that was carefully adhered and then illustrated upon with marker.  Nice work Tori!  Also, if I'm not mistaken, she has some work showing currently in Seattle and another exhibition opening in May at A/NT Gallery [also in Seattle].  Click HERE to check out her Facebook Event for details should you be in the area.

Postcard Project 2014: Mr. Gibbs

Actually, this is number two postcard, though it is being posted as the first.  I'm afraid my access to photoshop is spotty this year as I no longer have it on my computer, but I do have some access and thus, the first postcard to make it to the web . . . All the way from Maine no less!  Let the GREEN begin. . . So appropriate this year thanks to a hard winter here on the east coast.

Postcard Project 2014: Official Call for Entries

Here in lies the official call for entries for the 5th annual Rainboeliza Postcard Project! Open to one and all - artists, writers, children, adults, crafters, folks "without an ounce of art in their bones", all genders, and all folks that would like to join!  

Postcard Project 2014 is on!  



The theme is GREEN
[ by special request ]
Open to all and any interpretation!  

Must follow standard postcard format, meaning:
        • stamp in top right corner + address below 
• NO envelopes - period!
(well, unless the envelope is the postcard) 
The markings of the post office are what make it special!

Must include your name somewhere 
(anywhere on the postcard) 
so due credit can be given.

 Size? There are no size restrictions except it must be able to fit the stamp, address and your name. There also are no restrictions on how many postcards you send.


 What you do with the postcard beyond this is all you. . .
creative, bought, gifted, boring, cut, sliced, baked, glued, recycled, sewed, printed, painted, stacked, smoked, or hand-me-down. . . 
Uh, do keep it legal please!

All entries must be postmarked by 
May 31st, 2014 
and addressed to:

c/o Rainboeliza
154 Endslow Road
Marietta, PA 17547


• All postcards will be photographed or scanned and uploaded to the Rainboeliza Facebook Page and this here blog as they are received.

• A studio opening/show maybe an option.  Information will come on this as it is able.

• No postcards will be returned. By participating you are giving permission to have your postcard archived as part of the Rainboeliza Postcard Project.

• Please be sure to document your work before mailing. The Postal System is not 100% effective, which means your postcard may not arrive or may arrive damaged. Also, for those of you who like to break the rules (and I am a fan of rule breaking when it comes to art), but more specifically rule No.2 it would be great if you could email me an image of your postcard that way I know it is you and once again, I can give you credit.

• Cost of shipping your postcard is your responsibility and will clearly depend on your dimension weight etc.  Please check with your local Post Office.

• To see last year's entries for ideas or just because, click on the words "postcard project" at the top of this blog or to the right in the "cloud" of words.

• Questions? Email rainboeliza@yahoo.com

As a side note, for fellow postcard[ers] and portfolio[ers] Jason and Alia have contributed to these Rainboeliza projects on a number of occasions.  Look here, here, and here.

Lust a Small Space: Oh Nice

This gal always seems to feel the need to go, go, go
yet, rest, relax, enjoy, create, grow and make
Doesn't this antique mobile home with a garden 
& a pup too seem so lovely to do all of those?!
