The Great Canadian Border Crossing

 Since the Canadian border (and many others) is closed to US residents, and I am missing my visits to Canada this summer, I have launched a little project I'm calling my "Great Canadian Border Crossing". I've reached out to my Canadian contacts and asked them to send me an Art Start, no larger than 5"x7" or 13 cm x18 cm. I will add to it and then send it back across the border.

If you are in Canada and would like to participate, send me one piece of art that is a Start, not a finished piece and not something cut from a discarded piece. Make something fresh for this project. 

Send with a self-addressed envelope for its return to:

Jane Davies PO Box 45, Rupert, Vermont 05768

I will add something to it (not promising to 'finish' it) and send it back. I will respond in this way to every piece of mail I receive before September 15.

On the left is the piece as I received it; on the right is the piece with my additions. It is on its way back to Cape Breton Island, to North Sydney, Nova Scotia.


  1. What a great idea, Jane! I look forward to seeing whet you receive and how you add to it.

  2. Lovely additions from you. The colours are perfect with the brown background. That little half circle of orange really makes it!

  3. Hopefully that border will be open soon!


I have had some spam comments lately, advertising of stupid stuff. So I am moderating comments until I can figure out a better way to prevent spam. THANKS!
