Here is my entry into the 2007 Federal Duck Stamp Contest which happens to be for the 75th anniversary stamp. Because of the anniversary I went for a nostalgic, old fashioned looking image that hints at the earlier, original federal duck stamps. The painting is somewhat of a risk because I have never seen an entry that looks quite like this. That means that the judges will either really like it or vote it out immediately. This year will be tougher competition than normal so hopefully the difference from the other entries will help it to stand out.
