Summer Gift

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
given assortment  provided a welcomed diversion and a chance to imagine myself in other places among varied company.
