Lettuce is a colored wax on paper composition created by Hadassah at age 3. The young artist has also worked with ink on paper, and wax on a variety of plastics.

“Hadassah used two different shades of green when coloring Lettuce,” says Kevin Blackston, the artist’s father and proprietor of Philosateleian Post. “It is among the most original of her creations to this date, and it is a picture that I will keep always and am honored to be able to feature on Philosateleian Post’s new Contemporary Art stamp.”

Contemporary art is defined as “art made and produced by artists living today” (J. Paul Getty Museum), or as art “produced in the late 20th century or in the 21st century” (Wikipedia).
