Howard Koslow has created artwork for a variety of stamps that honor architectural subjects, but he is especially well known for his lighthouses. His appreciation of these historic structures is evident in this painting of West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, which dramatically hints at the cloudy Maine coastline in the distance.
