This is the study for a commissioned painting for the St. Clair Flats Waterfowlers Inc. conservation group. They are dedicated to conserving the habitat in the St. Clair Flats area, which is a renowned waterfowling hot spot in the country located on the Michigan/Canadian border. The painting depicts a cattail marsh (very common in the St. Clair Flats area) with a group of American wigeon coming in as seen from the hunter's perspective. Hunters and groups like the SCFWI are instrumental in wildlife conservation and there are hundreds of local conservation groups around the country that gross millions of dollars for habitat conservation each year.
