Nora I'm not sure about Texas but I do have the Postal museum web
site and also have a lesson on Stuart Davis> who was the first
person to have an art stamp. Only wish I had a computer when I did
the lesson because I had an actual stamp which I borrowed and now I
could have scanned it. However it is from a painting I could look
up. Let me know. So you could use the same idea as the lesson and
apply it to your own objective.
