Stamp Collection

Stamp Collection 2003: Acrylic, Stamps & Glue on Canvas, $200, 8'' by 10''

As a child I collected stamps. Well... I made my parents go to stamp museums and post offices buying up bags and bags of old stamps (probably not worth any more than the paper they were printed on.) One day I was looking through my room and found a torn bag that exploded with stamps. I gave up pretty soon after I started on organizing and labeling my stamp collection, and ended up with this bag of stamps that was hidden in my bookcase. I love using mixed media in my paintings and the feeling of covering the old with new by using these stamps.
