"...whether you are a mail artist"?

Good question for some members here, yes?

Hmmm,  need we answer? He belongs to a small group called: "pink correspondence" 

that sent out pink postage slips to us :-) So, I replied that I am "in the pink"!

Roland sent his question on the flip side of a very painterly altered "thermo baths" card:

Beautiful BLUE and a dash / splash of white!

and the explanation in German:

Roland Halbritter is not a member here at IUOMA,

but a very active mail artist, having had several projects

in the past that I participated in...like his "Bismarck" call in 2009.

Google his "images' and you'll discover hundreds...thousands!

Thanks Roland, where ever you are

oho! Or was the "fake" = Jake? hahaha!

Jake Rickter!!! Thanks, Amy, I really like it when others "piggyback" on blogs...

or "hijack" as we say. It brings together many art aspects of the mail artist.

Oh, yes, Amy! That was a fantastic series of "scrapped" painted cards from Roland.

Here is the  "fake" one he sent me:

And the two "Bismarck" art I sent Roland  in 2009!

I also received this from Roland, and on the back it said greeting from Jake Rickter. Of course, I had to know who Jake was and found out he was an awesome photographer and nature was his calling. Jake has since passed but his work speaks for his love of wildlife and the sea...

I replied to Roland with this piece...

thank MomKat for posting so I could piggy back on your post...Hope you do not mind...
