Stripygoose (13)



I think I've written more than once before that I am behind in posting my received (and outgoing) mail art (and replying to it). This way I sometimes post newly received items first, and many times I go back and forth, to post mail art received longer time ago.

So these great birds by Stripygoose I already received in March, almost half a year before receiving the previously posted birds.
The landscape makes me long for vacation, and the close-up bird makes me almost hear this bird sing!



Thank you very much, Stripygoose!

Stripygoose (12)



I love bird stamps, and Stripygoose was so kind to send me two: one in front (see above) and one on the back of a pretty mail art card!



Thank you very much, Stripygoose!

Great collage by Fleur Helsingor showing Birds on a photographed background.
These birds came in an envelope, made out of a photo collage of a nearby café window's display of photos and art.



Fleur also returned my add-and-return, from a serie which I will blog on IUOMA on a later date. Here already a part of it, thanks to the other wonderful Bird:



Thank you very much, Fleur!

Ruud Janssen (7)



From Ruud Janssen I received many great pieces of mail art. Due to lack of time I am much behind in posting, but I'll try to do so, step by step (animals on this blog, other themes on the IUOMA site).
So here some add-and-passes, I received in March already.
By the way, Mail Art Cows you also can find at the IUOMA Mail-Art Cow group.



This add-and-pass (above: front side, below back side) originated by Jon Foster.



Here is Ruud's typical art, showing asemic writing:



And the well-known painted envelope:



Thank you very much, Ruud!

Katerina Nikoltsou (28)



Katerina always knows how to cheer one up by her mail art. This time happy Cows from Paris entered my mailbox, via Greece.



On the back the Greek Owl, and some Squirrels. The Squirrels had escaped the inside of an envelope of a Dutch sustainable bank, and thus had traveld from the Netherlands to Greece and back again.



The animals were accompanied by a blue Greek moon. And more artistamps:



Also enclosed this egg head stamp, made and sent to Katerina by Ed Giecek:



Since Katerina run out of air mail envelopes, some new things happen to her present blank envelopes. This one got lines instead of air mail red-and-blue. And pretty stamps showing the ancient Greek god Poseidon:



Thank you very much, Katerina!
