An other Australian animal is the Bearded Dragon (Baard agame in Dutch). This one didn't need to travel that far, he only had to cross the North Sea (and some areas over land) to arrive at John's place in the United Kingdom.

Chess queen zentangled

Meanwhile the 'zentangling' kept on, and suddenly some chess figures appeared on my paper.

This one I created to send for the Connection 15 exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, May 2015.

No mountain without a valley...

... and also in valleys flowers bloom.

Created for Micu's mail art project 'Mail a Smile', sent to Henni in Finland (by the way, she creates beautiful water colour paintings).

Every month there is a new theme for mail art, to be sent to a new person who can use some smiles. So if interested to join this kind mail art project, see for more info the 'Mail a Smile' website.

I am not sure if these Puffins have arrived already. I've send them in December 2014, the Tufted Puffin (on top) to Hana in Japan, and the Atlantic Puffin to Denise in Canada. They might have got lost during their long flight, or, better, maybe they've met their family on their way, and just decided to stay there.
I see it before me, two drawn puffins standing on a rock above the see, surrounded by real puffins!..

Happy 2015! Colour your Year!

By this '2015' Snail Mail Snail I am wishing you an amazing, happy, healthy, creative, peaceful, loving and lovely New Year!
Feel free to download the picture and use it as a colour plate, feel free to choose your own colours for the New Year!

By the way, 'New Year' at the 1st of January is a relative subject: for some people New Year starts on the 1st day of Spring, for others the New Year starts on 19 February 2015, when the Year of the Horse will make place for the Year of the Sheep. And there are many more New Years! So you can keep on wishing your beloved ones good wishes every day :-)

An other Australian

As many of you will know, I love Australian animals.
Of these, the Kookaburra and the Australian Cassowary have some turquoise in common. The Kookaburra shows this beautiful colour in its wings, while turquoise colours the Cassowary's head and neck.

Mixed media (pen and colour pencil), created for Jack Oudyn and sent to, of course, Australia.

An other seagull, zentangled

And not only an other wave, but also the seagull returned into a new piece of mail art.
Created for and sent to Connie in the USA.
