52 Project: Recreate or Imitate

I’d like to thank Deana Hurt of StinkDog Photos in Denver, Colorado for choosing this week’s Beautiful Beasties 52 project theme – recreate or imitate a piece of art.  The assignment TOTALLY pushed me to learn new post-production techniques.  Fun, fun, fun!

In my most recent visits to the flea market, I’ve noticed a few vendors selling animal postage stamps from various parts of the world.   Many will never end up on display at a museum, but I’d still consider them little pieces of art.  Wouldn’t you?

A quick online search directed me to a number of sites that highlight animal postage stamps (ebay as well!).  For this week’s assignment, I am referencing a stamp from the Republic of Buriatia (which is located in southern Siberia) that was distributed in 2001 and featured a German Shorthaired Pointer (source: animalstamps.com).  My sister’s dog, Meekah, is part GSP and was my model recreating the postage stamp pictured above.
