Some days ago S. came back home from the office with an envelope of postage stamps for me, like he did last december.
I haven't found amazing works of art on them, this time. Most of them are a bit boring and traditional, nothing really new.
But a stamp captured my attention. This one from Austria:
Since I like ancient buildings (like churches), rural landscapes and special light effects ... it was love at first sight! :)
But there is also a different reason why this postage stamp fascinates me: its drawing shows a warm and spreading light in the dark, a thing I tried to draw in one of my faux postage stamps last January (but I explored the light of a candle).
The same theme, realized in two different ways in two postage stamps (one real, one faux). Isn't it funny?
Another stamp I like in this bunch is dedicated to International Women's day.
