USPS Winter Fun Forever Stamps
I was a stamp collecting nerd. So, it was thrilling to have the United States Post Service use 2 of my images in their Winter Fun 2015 Forever Stamps. I wonder if there are any kids who will have these in their stamp collections?
Lunar New Year
Every year, I create a new image for the Lunar New Year. Many have been commissioned by McDonald’s, they are used in posters, inserts and table tray inserts. As we approach 2019, my new Year of the Boar image is in my stock collection at The iSpot.
Crows guard the portal into morning magic.
Knee high waves on a 50 shades of gray kind of day.
Head high day near the most northwestern part of the US. Shared the waves with dolphins, stellar sea lions and puffins.
The quiet of this island is growing on me.
Prudence naps under the cello as I practice, even during the loudest most percussive moments. Wish we could trade places.
