Molly Raush’s Postage Stamp Paintings

The postage stamp is perhaps the most commonly available, and cheapest, work of art known to humanity. For just under fifty cents, you can acquire your very own miniature masterpiece. Well, New York artist Molly Raush has taken the idea of postage stamp art and literally expanded on it. For her clever paintings, Raush affixes old stamps to paper and then paints a watercolor scene that expands upon the image seen on the stamp. Raush’s scenes include an expanded Monopoly board (right), a Washington DC garden near the Capitol Building. or a tribute to Laura Ingles Wilder’s Little House On The Prarie.

Check out all of Raush’s paintings over at her website.
