Domino – 40
This was painting for my 40th birthday addressed to an alternate name of mine. It is an early stamp showing some “primitive” features including perforations by pounce wheel and glue that turned brown with age. The butterfly in the corner is because we hung out at Kapalua on Maui ( didn’t stay there – too expensive ) and the nautical battle flags spell out ALOHA. The cancellation of my stamp is by a cancellation stamp that I made up for the country of Pau. The 1977 date refers to when I graduated from medical school and thought I was going to be able to rest ( ha ! )…….
by me in Hawaii in 1990.
