Global Mail Art

My Mom made 10 postcards for the Global Mail Art group she joined.
She always takes pictures of them on the floor.
Here I am (Troelie) showing her that nothing beats the real thing!!!!
She received 10 gorgeous postcards from all around the world by wonderful artists and had to send 10 herself.
Here they are:
This one went to Lolo.
A do it yourself door hanger.
This one she made for Patty on her break from Hong Kong to Amsterdam. She gave it to a Chinese colleague , who took it back to Hong Kong to mail it from there.
It really went the world over twice :)
This one she made for Mim. She found a vintage postcard and used the lower part and painted the upper part.
This one was for Lisa. Watercolor, ink and silver leaf.
Another door hanger for Lynn.
A raffie and African landscape for Joss.
She didn't expect this boat to stay on during the trip to Caroline!
But miraculously it did!
A colorful cat for Cat
Moonlight for Debra (Did it ever get there...)
and Home is where the heart is for Suki!
Notice that 8 out of 10 cards have animals in them.......... :)
Happy Animal Wednesday!

    I haven't finished mine yet and I forgot to make a copy of Lisa's :(

    I think I've deleted most of them because my picture files are too big!

  6. Marianne....so, I see you have your Mother's wonderful artistic talent! Beautiful work!

    And....Troelie - what a cutie! Your animal "menagerie" is delightful.

    All these miniature works of art are so lovely, so inspiring! Sigh....wish I could paint....

  7. Sooo cute is your kitty! I just loved seeing them all of your postcards together! Beautiful, each and every one of them (but I the one you made for me best!!). I just made a flickr slide show of mine over on my blog - think I might do the same for the Arty Soulsisters pieces I did - I love to see them as a collection!
