The Unexpected Layer

Stampedelic, mixed media on canvas, 24”x24”

I have been working on a series of collages where the main, or only, source of collage material is old postage stamps.  Often when I delve into a new material there are unexpected results.  With stamps the postmarks form an unexpected and interesting layer.  I focus on laying down the stamps only to step back and see the postmarks on top adding another element to the work.

  1. I love this! My grandmother was an avid stamp collector and I have thousands of her stamps. I've been wanting to do a project in her memory. Really, really beautiful!!!
