    Stephen B. O'Brien, Jr.

I am happy to announce my cable TV debut this weekend! In February, I travelled to Texas to recreate my gallery for the filming of a TV show called ‘Accidental Fortune.’ We shipped out five boxes of decoys and artwork from Boston and I spent three days on location in San Antonio. The episode of Accidental Fortune will air at 8 PM and 11 PM on Sunday, April 18th on TLC. Tune in to watch the thrilling tale of discovery that surrounds several A.E. Crowell decoys!
