Mandala... that got creased in the post

This one is from 2006.
Very bright colours. Not a palette I would choose today.
It was 'on show' at an office I used to work for. 
Afterwards the people sent it to me in the post...
the postman did not handle it carefully.

Mail Art IN - United Kingdom, Gina Ulgen

Envelop with baroque content. 
Mind the fan on the right of the card. 
Even a duchess needs one in this summer heat ;)
Gina made a complete serie of these and sent them to Mail Artists all over the globe.

Thank you, Gina.

Children's Art by Amber & Bas

These gems were made by Amber & Bas.
Amber must have been 3 or 4, Bas 6 or 7. 
It was a grand day when they came to Amsterdam to do a private painting workshop. 
Is it really years ago?

Mail Art IN - Argentina, Cernjul Viviana

Looks like a 3D collage with partly recycled paper. 
Do I spot (a piece of) the inside of an envelop? 

Thank you, Cernjul

Doodles - two very oldies and a recent one

Rummaging through boxes with old stuff I found this tile with doodled A. 
It's not dated, but I remember making this in my parents garden, 
in the shadow of the old cherry tree. 
That's more then thirty years ago. 

So I was doodling long before I even knew what it was ;)

This one is dated 1982. 
That was also in the last century! 

And this is Kip, my neighbour's little birdy I was birdy sitting on the last weeks. 
She takes a close look at my doodle in progress in the moleskine.
