Three Muses challenge: Postage Stamps


This is the first time entering The Three Muses weekly challenge and I knew it was going to be late (busy week at work), but I finished it late last night anyway just in case anyone was interested in seeing it. Awhile back I saw an ad in the back on one of my home decorating magazines where you send in a dollar and get some stamps. One of those stamps was of Henry O. Tanner, and I chose that stamp to use for my collage after doing a little searching about Monsieur Tanner. Here you can find more about his life and legacy:
And here are some quotes attributed to him:
I chose my favorite for the collage--"I will preach with my brush"--I love that! He found a home in Paris and created some beautiful, thought-provoking works of art. Anyway, hope you enjoy visiting here today--thanks for stopping by. =)
