Over the years many of his paintings have received public recognition. Mason was awarded the Cross of Merit, first class, by the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of St. John of Malta following dedication of his eight large paintings on the life of St. Anthony of Padua, permanently installed in the 11th century Church of San Giovanni di Malta, Venice. Three murals on the history of the Saudi Arabian navy were completed for the King Faisal Naval Academy, Jiddah, Saudi Arabia in 1980.
Many of Mason's portraits are publicly displayed including Col. Earl "Red" Blaik at the West Point Military Academy; Concita Sintron at the Concita Sintron Museum, Lima, Peru; the Hon.
