This summer a friend and fellow artist Amy Long gave me a collection of canceled stamps. After organizing the stamps I found several unusual examples. The cancellation mark in the stamp below seems perfectly placed to indicate the future direction of the characters.
The most unlikely stamp I found in the collection (seen below) features ermine (a kind of weasel) in a Christmas motif. Although this animal has a white winter coat, it seems like a surprising choice for a holiday greeting.
Finding diverse stamps among the assortment provided a welcomed diversion and a chance to imagine myself in other places among varied company.
