Here is my entry into this year's federal duck stamp contest. With this painting I was going for a more romantic lighting. The habitat is classic Willamette Valley and was inspired from a private pond where I have the opportunity to hunt.My Website
My passion is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. This passion started early in life as I always knew I wanted to be a wildlife artist. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying the birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others.
