    1. Dear Mr. Gutierrez : I cannot imagine better representations of Jimi Hendrix than the paintings you have created.  The full on portrait of Jimi is so colorful and playful and yet captures his tremendous depth and soul.

      Thank you for this masterpiece – hope you do many more stamps in the future.. My own father, Frank Conley, designed the 1960 Credo Series and a few others for which fact I have always been very proud.  

      Sincerely, Linda C. Kaye, Los Angeles
