2016-17 Federal Duck Stamp


March, 2016

I have been working on a swan painting. I am hoping that the lower part will be used as the background of the PSA version of  this year's duck stamp, and the overall painting will likely form the basis of a poster commemorating the appearance of Trumpeter Swans on the Federal Duck stamp.

Otherwise, I've been gearing up for the release of the 2016-2017 duck stamp print.

The brothers and I did well in the Federal Duck Stamp contest this year.  I got first place, Bob was second and Jim third!

Here is the winning design, Trumpeter Swans, inspired by the amazing recovery of trumpeter swans over the last couple of decades. Click the image for a time-lapse video of the painting as it was being created.
