Official press release from the USPS

18 04 2016

From the USPS official press release:

Hi,

I’m with the Postal Service and wanted to give you a heads up that Washington, D.C., area photographer Cindy Dyer beat the odds by having her beautiful water lily photo selected on a Forever Stamp as the 11th of 16 stamps to celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary. Cindy is a great interview. Please feel free to reach out to her: 703.577.4122 or dyerdesign@aol.com. Here’s Cindy’s website: www.cindydyerphotography.com

The Postal Service gets about 40,000 suggestions for stamp ideas each year, but only about 20 topics make the cut. To have your work appear on a stamp is extremely rare and is often unparalleled in a photographer’s career.. Here’s a link to the news release: http://about.usps.com/n…/national-releases/2016/pr16_026.htm

The June 2 first-day-of-issue ceremony for the National Parks Forever Stamps pane will take place at New York City’s Javits Center at 11 a.m. as part of the world’s largest stamp show that only takes place in the United States once a decade, World Stamp Show-NY 2016. Dedication ceremonies will also take place at or near each of the National Parks depicted on the stamps. Individuals are asked to spread the news on social media by using the hashtags ‪#‎NPSStamps‬, ‪#‎FindYourPark‬ or ‪#‎NPS100‬.

Other National Park Forever Stamps previewed to date include Acadia National Park, Arches National Park, Assateague Island National Seashore, Bandelier National Monument, Carlsbad Caverns National Park , Everglades National Park, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve,Grand Canyon National Park, Gulf Islands National Seashore and Haleakalā National Park.

Yay! Another stamp with the USPS!

I’m a USPS stamp artist three years in a row with this announcement. Pretty exciting stuff! My image is one of the 16 featured in this release. They announce one release per day and this was the 11th stamp announced. The entire National Park Forever stamp series debuts June 2 and will be available in post offices nationwide.

Cheek-to-cheek, a Pixelgram from our DIY kitchen-renovation-in-progress (iPhone 6s / Snapseed app)

Sidebar: the lady head with the napkin hairdo was set up at our Le Diner en Blanc soirée a few years ago. (See recap of that party here: https://cindydyer.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/le-diner-en-blanc-virginia-style/)

I had the lady head at the end of a table with plates and utensils. I think maybe two out of my 30 guests took a napkin. The rest used some paper napkins from the crepe bar. I later learned that everyone thought it was just a display and didn’t want to disassemble it. It’s been on display ever since!
