What am I posting?

I have often thought of postage stamps as miniature works of art.  Here Diana Sudyka takes stamps one step further.  I love these. Make them bigger to see the details.

“Chicago-based Illustrator Diana Sudyka uses vintage stamps from Europe as the starting point for fanciful paintings created using gouache, ink, and watercolor. These miniature engravings of portraits, architecture, and ships  become fully formed figures and landscapes that merge with trees and flowers and convene with animals. Many of the artist’s paintings include phrases of hand-painted text that add an additional narrative element to the works.”
