WOO HOO! Dear Mark. You had the privilege to turn 70 today. Congratulations and Happy Birthday and Many, Many more in peace and happiness.
I posted this in private this morning, but I want to post it here In RR too. And what did my eye spot? Both Tara and Ana, so how could I not do it?
You have been one of my best friends for many years and I feel lucky to have you in my life. And I can only agree with what Ana said, so I wont even try to keep up with her, because she said it more beautiful than I can ever do, so I just jump on same train :)
All my very best wishes for your following years to be amazing, creative, healthy and happy.
Love from Helle

WOOOW, Dear Helle:)) What a beautiful panel for Mark:)! I like the alternation the images and the strong and soft colors. All them are joyful and festive. Like a walk through the night, till the full sun arrive in the last one--and it's another tapestry:) to make 'pan-dan' (as we say here) with all the others that he has. I like how you turned some of them around:)--there is a lot to see and discover in all them; they are musical and show your love; again it is a wonderful creation that it is SO MUCH YOU! Surely you made this day for Mark more special, Helle:) Happy Birthday again Mark :)
** I wish to you--Helle--and all your family, a wonderful Spring:)
You certainly presented our friend Mark with a vast melange of artistic decor to mull over for his birthday....a variety of labor of love quilts from what I can ascertain. They appear to emanate a feeling of transparency. I know he will appreciate it and be inspired to leave a sumptuous comment in response. Anyway, happy to see that you're still with us, Helle, at least in spirit. Incidentally, I read yesterday that Denmark was second only to Finland as the happiest country in the world. The USA was situated below at a rather depressing nineteenth.
Ok, I'm gonna have a hard time describing everything here...you know how much I love your montages and pop art pieces, and the pieces you put in your notebooks; you gave me a whole bunch here. I see some common themes, but it took time for me to see that there were variations, because you really made them all different. The top one has those "helle" colors---deep purples and blues and greens, which I and your fans love. And you have a way with everyday objects---a clown face, flowers, text, etc etc---to where they become a big street fair. It's a big blast of energy and play. The 2d, 3d, and 5th images look like they're based on some fairy tale trees (and lollypops); and I love the writing upside down and right side up, and the print, and all those different patterns and splotches; and the bottom one is like an autumn fire with sun and caramel all over it. You return to the clown and flowers---only in reverse order. And that has print in it too, along with so many other elements. Then you made a transition from those hues to similar but lighter hues, in the next piece; then ending in that burst of buttery autumn colors...In other words, there's a sequence here; but there always is, in your montages; it's just this one has so much going on as we get there. This is just splendid, Helle; I love this wild, highly designed style of yours, where you dive in and let your imagination take you, but you still get design. While they're childlike, I don't think any child would have the experience or know how to make pieces like these. They're wonderful, and I thank you so much!
As for your words---yes, I read Ana's piece, and it was beautiful and very moving. And you don't have to say what she said, because you say it without saying it all the time; and your art says it too. Thank you so much, it's a beautiful gift, and I'm very grateful; and man, that art is a freaking fair. All you need is some salsa music and some heavy-duty dancers, and it could be from the streets of Rio de Janeiro or many other places. Thank you so much, Helle. Like you, this is pure magic and always very dear.
I am stunned, by just looking at all those individual panels, there is a lot to discover on closer inspection, very rich tapestries indeed... and all those details are well appreciated by dear Mark, who never misses a 'trick' on all those details - LOL what a present !!! Well done Helle...
My favourites would have to be the ones, where you inserted a CLOWN, unlike most people, I do love clowns, what is there not to love ? So, it's once more for your milestones of Birthday anniversaries, dear Mark and many happy returns to you for a brighter 'Zukunft' 🤓 and cheers to your good health !
