In May I was in an antique store and they had bags of used postage stamps for a dollar. I grabbed a couple of bags. One bag has stayed in my sight since I purchased it, the other one disappeared. Tonight the 2nd bag just materialized (things do that here). It was stuffed full, I found some stamps that fit perfect in the Gingersnap challenge. So I made a quick, simple ATC!
The artist are Mary Cassatt, John Trumbull and Thomas Easkins. Art history is definitely not one of my strong suits, so I did a little research. Each name is linked to an article on Wikipedia.
I guess the art classes I've taken have left a small impression on my brain! I didn't remember Mary's name, but I recognized one of her paintings, "The Boating Party"!!! I am totally impressed! lol I thought I recognized John Trumbull's name before I looked up his art work, after I looked him up I didn't recognize any of the paintings. I didn't recognize either Thomas Easkins' name or paintings. Like I said, art history is NOT my strong suit.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
