"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks"
- John Muir (1838-1914)

The 5 cent United States postage stamp from 1964 commemorates John Muir, the naturalist and conservationist. He founded the Sierra Club and petitioned the US Congress to pass the National Park Bill in 1899. His spirited writings and activism helped save forests that are now national treasures like Yosemite Valley and the Sequoia National Park. He is one of the great men we should all try and emulate.

The face of this canvas measures 13 x 8 inches (33 x 20.3 cm). It is from a series of 20 pieces that I will make in this size. Larger sizes are available, including an example that measures 28 x 17 inches (71.1 x 43.2 cm). If you don't see any among my other Etsy listings please inquire.

I wanted to enjoy stamp artwork without a magnifying glass, without trapping these great little pieces of art in rarely seen binders. I started to blow them up and thought of Past Postage. Vintage postage stamps, meticulously scanned, cleaned, enlarged and printed on a premium archival canvas using professional equipment. The canvas is given a protective UV coating and stretched and stapled over handmade wooden frames of kiln dried poplar. Smaller pieces like this one are stretched over a half inch thick piece of high quality birch ply. The perforations of the stamps are gallery wrapped unto the sides of the frame, making additional framing unnecessary. All artwork comes securely packaged and ready to hang. This is all done under one roof by one person.

Thank you for visiting - and if you like this piece I have many more in my store.
