Radish Nederland Vintage Stamp Painting

50.00

This item is a painting of a vintage Dutch postage stamp from 1970. The painting is mounted on a Japanese blue paper covered board that you may hang on a wall or can stand on its own.

As a lover of stationary and mail, it seems inevitable that I would develop a love and draw inspiration from postage stamps.  I fell into painting stamps while working on a body of work for the exhibition “philes & ists” which explored people and their collections. Of the cast of characters I painted, was the very man from which I purchase all of my stamps. As I started to comb through the myriad of stamps in his collection, I became inspired by the quirky subjects, designs and colors. Not only am I learning to draw and paint in ways I never would have thought of before, but I am discovering more about world history and culture through a new perspective. While each country and time period has its own style, I have found that we as people have more in common than we do not.
