09-27-19 I went to my 50th high school class reunion last weekend. There I met a classmate Janet whose husband accidentally learned about my paintings. His name is Robby Rudine a.k.a. Dogfish and he does stamp art as well ! He calls his outfit the nation of Tui Tui. Very cool and in fact he has a brand of machine perforator of which I was unaware ( it is not Rosback ). He uses computer graphics to create his compositions as below. He and his wife live on a houseboat on Lake Union in Seattle. This stamp commemorates the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens in 1981. Loowit is the Indian name for St. Helens.
Incidentally I knew in a brief way the geologist that was killed in that event — Dave Johnston who was a graduate student at UW where I studied and his fiance was Christine Carlson, who lived at the sorority that I worked at as a houseboy at the time.
