"Portuguese Lighthouse"

  • 2007 Pacific Coast Lighthouses Grays Harbor Combo w/ 2003 Tybee Island
  • Available with various Lighthouse Stamp Issues


I completed the Original Oil Painting on 8/14/1974... the photo above was taken when it was close to being finished.  The painting now hangs in my study and looks the same (although complete) however the artist has changed slightly... shorter "lighter" hair and mustache, and most of the sideburns are gone too!  A quick click on the photo will update the current look of the artist...



"The Windmill Dock"

1980 "Midget Size" Windmills - #s 1738 - 1742

The Original Oil Painting for this was completed in 1975



"Greenville Woods, TX Skiing/Singing Frog"

1998 Winter Sports Alpine Skiing - Add-On

This design is the result of my 2008 Entry in the "Washburn Challenge" contest that for several years was put on by a "Mystery Man" in Brentton Woods New Hampshire.  I added the singing frog to his design and intended to obtain a Greenville, Texas cancel... I used a Kermit (Muppets) stamp and subtitled the cover "It's EASY to be Green in GREENVILLE!".  The cover won "Most Creative" and I decided to do an "EmPrint" version using this skiing stamp...



"Peachy Sunflowers"

2008 Sunflower #4347

Another of my 1970s Oil Painting was used here...



"Safe At The Plate!"

2008 Take Me Out to the Ball Game #4341

I did this Watercolor Painting expressly for the printing of this "EmPrint" cover design.



"25th Anniversary - AFDCS Chapter 56"

2011 Ronald Reagan

This Anniversary "EmPrint" cover was done for the 25th Anniversary which corresponded with the 2011 TEXPEX show in Dallas, Texas.  It was made available at the show where Bart Forbes, the artist that designed the Reagan Stamp signed many of them for buyers.


The original painting and one of the EmPrint covers were matted and framed. 

This is now exhibited in the Wineburgh Philatelac Library on the campus of Texas University Dallas - Meeting place for the AFDCS Fred Sawyer Chapter 56.



"I Survived Bob Emrick's Cachet Making Presentation"


I did a quick "EmPrint" cover depicting myself presenting at the TEXPEX 2011 show...  These were "free" handouts to attendees...
