Stamp design is a prestigious commission but comes with many restrictions.  The subject matter is chosen by the Post Office and different artists are invited to submit designs.  Should you be good enough to be chosen, the finished painting is worked up in proportion to about A4 size.

There are exceptions as was the case of the stamp to celebrate the year of environment 2002 in Oman.  It is reproduced from my original life size portrait of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos of Oman.
