I live in the USA in the State of Connecticut. There is a town in Connecticut with the name Bethlehem. For over 235yrs the Post Office in this town has made a new cancelation stamp every year for Christmas. At Chrismas time all of these stams are available to place on your Christmas cards when mailing them. It is a tradition for people across the USA and even into Canada to journey to this town just to use these stamps that bear the name Bethlehem.
I was asked to creat a painting during a Flamenco Music presentation at the Mattatuck just one week before Christmas. I decided to take my canvas to the Bethlehem P.O. and adorn it with a few of these stamps. The piece I created that evening with the Flamenco Dancer is surrounded by these stamps.
