Postcards for the weekend: Time, clock

This weekend New Year's Eve will take place. In Dutch we name this evening 'Oudejaarsavond', which means 'Old Year's Eve' :-)

'Time' and clocks have a major role in this time of the year, so I am happy that Maria chose 'Time / Clock' for theme for this weekend's Postcards for the Weekend.

The scenes in the two postcards which I like to share here with you are possible any day of the year.

I've send this one to John, who in 2015 had a mail project on the theme 'clocks'. It shows a painting by Marius van Dokkum. The painting speaks for itself, doesn't it?!
Personally I am a fan of the works of this Dutch painter. I learned to know his works thanks to postcards!
Especially his paintings about 'modern times' cause a big smile on my face, as do the 'couples', and some of his 'nostalgia' works ring bellsof recognition, too. I hope you'll enjoy his art, too!

The following postcard I bought in a museum and I've sent in 2015, too. Alas I forgot the name of the photographer, and I didn't write the name when I scanned it. Anyhow I think it an intriguing and nice picture.

See more postcards on 'time' and/or 'clocks' on and via Maria's Postcards for the Week blog.
Wishing a Happy New Year to all of you and your beloved ones!

  1. The photographer was Gulsun Karamustafa. You kindly sent me that one as well! It's not only an intriguing picture but an equally intriguing title - "Compromise".

  2. Amusing painting, time moves slower out in the countryside.

  3. Hi Heleen, It was fun to find your blog in 2016. Looking forward to more in 2017. As Joy said, that painting is amusing. Thanks for the smiles! Happy New Year to you and yours.

  4. Happy New Year, Heleen, thanks for all the great blog posts in 2016.

  5. Hi Heleen, keeping a record of the postcards I've sent to someone is a habit I need to learn... I'm so grateful for all the postcards you've shared for the linky and the lovely comments you've left in my page for 2016. I wish to continuously have your participation in 2017! Happy new year!
