This is the stamp Teri e-mailed to me.

After my version was completed I googled “Guyana 2.55 stamp” and discovered the image is a portrait painted by Joan MirĂ³.

The stamp was imported and all work was done around it.

This is not “officially” postage since it is just a snippet of a painting but since the idea of the challenge hasn’t changed it is filed under that category in my mind.

Here is the entire image Teri sent in an e-mail with strict instructions not to look for or investigate the painting. Ok.

Last evening she sent a link to the original painting. Of course Benedicte knew who the artist was as soon as she saw the fragment.

And, when the idea was first introduced to us by Teri, I sent her an email asking for clarification.

I worked around the image I was given.

(The b/w image was just a quick tracing done in Finngr Pro and a serendipitous brush from iColorama was added).

(I can’t show you all #1 yet.)

My friend Teri challenged us and I had so much fun doing it that I asked her for more. Now, I’m not showing you the finished official challenge piece because we are supposed to reveal it to each other later today.

This is the second one I did.

Teri e-mailed the picture of the postal stamp shown below, (Republica de Guinea Equatorial), with the instructions to complete it. She glues them to paper and then uses paint, etc. iPat and I automatically jumped in and went crazy.

Just a few minutes ago I googled and found out the image was painted by Picasso. Well, duh on me.
