I'm been shopping for a new picture for our small bathroom that was just repainted. In the past, two framed sets of stamps were in there. Stamps are so beautiful and I had quite a big collection. I stuck some on black fabric and threw them in a frame, but I was ready for something different.

Some of it was assignments from a correspondence course he took. Not only is my husband a master musician, but a wonderful artist.
