Going Postal (Part Deux)


Here's another taste of my ongoing series  inspired by postage stamps from around the world. I applied guache, sumi ink, charcoal, and colored pencils to 4" by 6" sheets of watercolor paper. To paraphrase the Grateful Dead, this project is taking me on a very "long strange trip".  I hope you'll stay with me on this one.

You can see how this project got started right here.

Beautiful prints of these pieces are available here.

but in having new eyes.” ~ Marcel Proust


Happy travels this summer!
