I am almost finished with three spreads in the first signature of the barn series that I am doing with my friend Ingrid. The two barns seen here were taken on my journey to photograph barns and to see the tulips in the Skagit Valley last month. I found some insect stamps in a box recently and decided that they would work well with the background color. The postage stamps were discovered in my father's desk as I was cleaning up some of his paperwork. My friend Marlyn gave me some receipts that date back to the mid-nineteenth century and the photos of people were found at the Long Beach, California fleamarket in October. I used packing tape to transfer the images for some. I really like how the background color comes through the image. To finish it off I used Portfolio Pastels.
