The Netherlands

Picture if you will a wee little Dutch boy with his finger in the dike or some cute’ish type girl with her blue dress and brilliant white apron, lil’ braids topped with a crisp bonnet. Well those did not make it onto my Postcard {insert sad face}. But what about those quaint windmills…ah forget about it … As you can see I went with the standard Tulip look because this week brings Allen’s reply to Liz’s chewing out, so you see flowers were very much called for.

It looks as if there was a delay in the postal system with Liz’s apology to Allen. And here we go…

Postcard #11 Allen to Liz – The Netherlands: acrylic paint background with white tissue paper “clouds”, collaged Tulips done with watercolor crayons


And it reads…


Miss Liz E. Woods

I apologize for my boy’ish remarks. I offer no excuse other than I am what I am. I truly hope you are being safe for your own well being &; not because of any chauvinistic tendencies I may exhibit while in an altered state of mind. R.H. has assured me that the lawn will not go wild again, it was some sort of communication error with the gardener. Again my apologies. I look forward to hearing from you in hopes of continuing our correspondence.

All my best Allen Bell

Just tried to catch up with you. Saw your journey journal is an altered book. That's what I'm doing too. Hope to catch up with the gang asap. All of your cards are so lovely but I didn't have time to read all of your story yet. later.
Thanks for stopping by

Brilliant tulips - I like how some of their petals are flopping. My tulips always get floppy petals really quickly :o(
