Heebee Post #920 - Anna Banana - Roberts Creek, British Columbia - Canada
Anna is well known for a variety of wonderful talents over the many years she has been an active artist. I originally was introduced to the intrepid Anna at an artist's meeting for a proposed sculpture show in the Goodman Building in San Francisco about 1980. I spoke with her about that at the Museum of Artistamps grand opening in Seattle last November. She smilingly mentioned that she didn't remember me (after all it was only 33 years ago!). Anyway, it was nice making friends with her at MOA!
I do believe that I shall be taking MS. Banana's above advice (I often do it anyway). Happy New Year to you too Anna! Love this card!
Anna's Scientific Art Research is a gas and Anna conducts it with an Art Research Professor's demeanor - a professional and quite serious approach!
Anna is probably best known for her stamp making abilities as she actually prints and perforates for many stamp makers. Check the quality of her work on the above commemorative sheet for Robbie (Dogfish), the curator and creator, for the MOA opening. As perfect as you can stand it! I like Jas Felter's "ECUADADA" set of three in the center of the glorious sheet. What an addition to my growing collection of Aristamps. Thank you, thank you, I love, love it! I'm creating my own mini museum of Faux Postage myself!
I felt an odd closeness with Anna as we chatted at the MOA. She seemed so cool with her friendly art aura surrounding her like a force field - it was fun being inside that art shield with her for a while! Anyway, she sent the above affirmation that she liked me too!
Anna's decorated envelopes have a distinctive appearance and I am always very delighted to pull one of these out of my mail box - like a fisherman pulling up a Chinook (King) Salmon! Thank you very much Anna. I have something nearly ready to send out to you - another day or two! See you in the mail . Anna Bananaland universe of art.

Mail Art - The Romantic Paper Sport for everybody that has imagination with heart!
September 17 - 2013: "Every human being is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no other is, and to do what no other can do." - Channing. One of the best uses of originality is to say common things in an uncommon way. Mail Art lends itself nicely to this lane of thought. In fact, if you would like to continue down that noble lane, Mail Art creation is a perfect venue for a display of originality - and "If you create something, you must be something" - Goethe. So, let's be a "Something" and have some fun as well. Heebee Jeebeeland welcomes all you "Somethings". The 4th Dimension is the perfect place for all you "Somethings that create something". Anything. And, if you will be absolutely silent in your mind for a moment and listen carefully, you can just hear the dreamy strains of Judy Garland singing that glorious tune "Something over the Rainbow". Ahhhhhh, yes. Remember: Senders receive! Test Tower / 1365 Centralia-Alpha Rd. / Chehalis, WA / 98532 USA

Welcome to Heebee Jeebeeland
When I was a kid, there was an old cartoon I saw many times on TV. While a child was sleeping, the unusual wallpaper all over his room came to life and began to dance back and forth, up and down in a rather fanciful symmetry accompanied by a sort of goofy graveyard mischief music. All manner of mayhem went on until the sun shone again at dawn and the dancing pranksters rushed back to their original spots and the wallpaper became still again. It is in the vicinity of that realm that Heebee Jeebeeland exists. Please send Mail Art that needs to live here and be shown on this blog. ********************************************
