Painting from Austria ...

Today i like to share with you a beautiful painting stamp, as shown on the right of cover above. This painting stamp was issued on 18 Mar 2010 by Austrian Post ( in commemoration of 100th anniversary of Max Weiler's birth. Danke schön, Florian!

Max Weiler (27.8.1910 - 29.1.2001), a great Austrian artist of classical modern and contemporary art, was born in Hall in the Tyrol. Featured on stamp was Max Weiler's painting, "Bald geht die Sonne auf" (Soon the sun will rise), painted in 1970. This painting is part of collection held by the Essl Museum in Klosterneuburg and Vienna.

The other stamps on the left -
The €0,10 flower definitive stamp was issued in 2007.
The €0,55 bee-eater stamp was from the issue of Animals (honeybee and bee-eater, a set of 2 stamps), issued on 28 Aug 2009.

Also, I received the cover above sent by Edna. Thanks, Edna :-)

Edna used a €0,65 ATM label to complete the postage. This ATM label, which was purchased from "Sonderpostamt" (shop of philatelic services in centre of Vienna), was from the new ATM series of floral theme, issued early this year by Designed by Hannes Margreiter, this new ATM series came with two designs, namely marguerite (as shown above) and water lily.
