Snakes At Last!

Two snake-related postcards arrived in my mailbox recently - how exciting! 
The top card is from Penelope, who is a postcrosser, but did not send the card via postcrossing. It is a card issued by Canada post, and so is the lovely snake stamp she used. Thanks for this fabulous card, Penelope!
The card below is from mail artist "Hilarious Assistant Principal," who has sent me an anti-military establishment snake card. It is fabu!!!
By coincidence I have been making a lot of mixed media paintings using acrylic paint and snake sheddings. The themes are related to the Folsom Street scene. Snake sheddings are my newest favorite material as they become very pliable and skin-like when wetted down. They also have distinctive smells...
