Latest work: "Panama Postal Collage"

Hand-painted gelatin print on Fabriano paper, crafted in Italy by the Fabriano mill. The postage stamp (issued in 1965) depicts a Panamanian azulejo, or blue-grey tanager (Thraupis episcopis). The vintage dark green postage stamp from Panama was issued sometime between 1904 and 1924. I found the “Par Avion” sticker in a junk store in Washington State’s Skagit Valley.

Sent to my friend June a few weeks ago.
