Local artist paints the next postage stamp

Christopher Hitchens certainly wouldn't be pleased about this, but most of the world knows the late Mother Teresa to be a saint in every sense of the word. She's been honored throughout the world, and now her visage will grace a 44-cent U.S. postage stamp.

More interestingly, the portrait was completed by local artist Thomas Blackshear, with whom we spoke earlier this summer, when he exhibited his highly popular and mostly religious art at the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts. (You can read the story here.)
