If you study this cachet, considering the painting portion of it all, something occurred with this issue that hasn't happened in probably 15 years. The painted background goes behind the stamp.

What this indicates, is that I painted the cover before I had the stamps affixed and cancelled.

When viewing your other covers, mine or another artist's, if the paint or design goes around the stamp or stops short of the stamp, this indicates the cover was painted after it was cancelled.

I think this marks only the second time in   

almost 25 years that I have produced a

cachet utilizing a high-denomination stamp.  My reason for choosing this stamp is because of my presence at the Southeastern Stamp Expo in Norcross, Georgia.  I produced this cachet prior to the event and stamped and hand-cancelled each cachet while in attendance on Friday, January 30th, following the opening ceremony.  Janice and I had a  wonderful time that weekend.  That was the first stamp show for us in 14 years.  We have determined to attend as many as possible beginning with 2015.  Presently, we are signed up for TEXPEX in Dallas, Texas the end of February and two weeks later will be in Houston for the Greater Houston Metro       Postcard & Paper Show.  After that, we will see what’s available.  At the Georgia Stamp Expo, we were positioned directly across from the USPS booth, and next to them were my good friends Foster Miller and Chris Lazaroff.  Chris’ wife, Denise was also in attendance and it was a pleasure to share breakfast and conversation with those two.
