The Fairy Ury in the Mystic Night of Eronyk

These stamp images, which give us some rather luxurious shades of
blue and blue violet, suggest the art of the Fauvists, that early 20th
century group of European artists, which included Matisse, Dufy,
Derain, and Vlaminck.

My palette here is digital, rather than relying on paints, of course.
This is suitable for cyberstamps, those faux postage editions that
only exist in Cyberspace.


The Mystic Night of Eronyk is not a metaphor for Cyberspace,
but refers to the etheric world of fairies, as related in my other posts
about Urissakzillia.
