abstract art, part 2

This stamp from the Netherlands celebrates the Floriade, a massive horticultural expo held every ten years. On this particular year, 1992, it was held in Zoetermeer in the southwest of the country.
I would have expected a floriade stamp to be a little more colourful.

another one from the Netherlands, this one a 'greetings' stamp from 1993. I have no idea what those triangular shapes represent

but abstract art can be like that.....

see other abstract stamps here

I would like to write more, but this *^%# tendinitis gets in the way


  1. This floral expo sounds interesting.

  2. I am with you, I am not sure what is represented on these stamps! Good for the theme however.
    Thank you for joining in.

  3. I like the flora one, even if it is a bit monochromatic.

  4. I really like the second stamp, with its bright colours and triangles... they kind of remind me of sail boats. Great stamp. Sorry to hear about the tendinitis: that totally sucks!

  5. I like the water lilies on the first, I wonder if the design continues onto another stamp. I think the second are yachts too, a word we get from the Dutch. Sorry to hear about your tendinitis.

  6. I like both stamps, and both are great choices for the theme.

  7. Two fine stamps - I thought of yachts too.

  8. Missed visiting last week die to what I thought was flu but it thankfully disappeared.

    I was there at that Floriade in 1992! It was a wonderful experience for me though two reluctant teenagers were tagging along. Their memories aren't quite the same.


Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
