"Yes innovation, except if the theory of synchronicity does not demate.🤔😀 I am joking of course. Well done. Both the idea and the realization"

Dear M. this is perfectionism.
It's unbelievable that it's a collage. Perfectly technical. About the artistic moment: you have created some incredible dynamics. My personal impression is that everything in the picture is moving, like a music video, an animated film.
thanks a lot.

Thank you Melanie Redd, It's beautiful. You hit me in the "weak spot" black and white. I can't decide if you have a more accurate hand or eye.
Of course the story, the idea is crucial.
I'm not the most sure that I've seen something like this, and I'm not exactly an absolute ignoramus😀.
Thank YOU for making us happy with your art and gifts.

Greetings from Rilla 4! I’ll have a look to see if the souvenir shop is still there! Otherwise we have to time travel to a much less distant version!

Celebrate spring by sending your mail art friends a "gaekkbrev" -- a form of shared Danish paper art that's traditionally sent out in the month of April. Watch your mailboxes! I might be sending you one! :)
