Motu – Pitcairn
When a couple in my medical practice mentioned they were going to Pitcairn Island I got so excited to paint some pigeons – I could hardly sleep. This one is closeup of a segment of the northern coast of the island in the vicinity of Matt’s Rocks. I enjoyed doing it as a twin stamp without the white border at the common boundary. A dream come true *place* for me. Unfortunately, the post office there did not cancel my paintings. You can’t win ’em all !
