Mesembs Art: Stamps by Hein Botha
I just wanted to share two lovely South African stamps from a set painted by Hein Botha in 1988. The top stamp is of the gorgeous diva mesemb, Frithia pulchra, and the lower is of the very popular and distinctive Lithops dorotheae.
I have both plants in my collection, so I couldn't resist adding their portraits!
Frithia pulcra, MR
I looked up Hein Botha and saw that he is still painting, and has a website. Here's the Bio page for those interested:
I'm always happy to share the work of a Lithops artist! To all my readers, have a wonderful, creative weekend.
