Special Note to the Webists - here is a method of selling your art as rare collectible honored by government servicing! As you can see below, I used our other current "Art Portrait" project to serve as bio of artist to pique interest of potential online collector.
About the Stamp: I finally got my first order of Photostamps! I was relieved to inspect the crisp printed quality of my digital Web art with wonderful reproduction of detail and color saturation. After envelope design and signing of the 10 envelopes, I could not resist standing in line at the local post office. When I got the counter, the agent said to fellow counter postal workers, "Hey look, a Photostamp! Is it wonderful?" Another replied, "It's so colorful (she sees stamps all day long, year in, year out)." "What is it?" asked another government employee stamping, well, stamps. I replied, "It's sweets served in my brother's candy store.... and I'm the artist."
The all raved over the design as people behind me tried to remain patient with this too much talking customer with ALL the counter workers. (4 lines stopped working, praising the stamp). Finally I said can you postmark it in front of me and she gladly complied. Then I said can I take a sample directly to my brother's store as a gift, sort of "Special Delivery, let me work for you." She smiled and handed one back to me. See then said, "Can I have one?" I looked at her sternly and said, "You better make sure all the remaining ones go in the mail!" She smiled and disappointedly said, "OK, don't worry, the mail will get delivered."
