2009 - My Fourth Full Year of Cachetmaking...


 

 

2009 Redwood Forest 

"Chandelier Tree"


 

 

"The Raven" won First Place in the 2009 American First Day Cover Society Cachetmaker's Contest

2009 Edgar Allen Poe - #4377

"The Raven"

               This design won FIRST PLACE in the 2009 AFDCS Cachetmakers Contest...                   Hand Drawn/Hand Painted Category

Here is a later version of the design.  

Rather than mixed media with pastel background I did the entire cover using water

based oils... with the same gold metallic type.  

Even though the pastel version won First Place in the 2009 Contest, I like this better.
