“Watching Over Her”
2023 Maine Duck Stamp
This year I was honored to have my artwork chosen as the winning design for the Maine Migratory Waterfowl Program.
Archival prints are now available. Limited edition prints are of the the standard collectible size of 6.5” x 9” on 12”x14” paper.
Prints are numbered __/100 and hand signed, packaged with a white mat, ready for framing.
In 1984, the Maine Dept. of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife instituted a state duck stamp program. The stamp was required by hunters 16 years and older. In 2002, MDIFW discontinued the duck stamp requirement of hunters, but instead required the purchase of a State Migratory Waterfowl Permit on the hunting license. (Note, hunters also need a Federal Migratory Waterfowl Permit).
Duck stamps are still available for purchase by collectors, and revenue from the sales of the stamps are dedicated to waterfowl conservation programs in Maine.

My painting “Penobscot Pursuit” will be used for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Recognition print for 2023.
I have a small number of prints available for sale to the general public.

I am honored to be the chosen artist to help support MDIFW’s mission:
“MDIFW protects and manages Maine’s fish and wildlife and their habitats, promotes Maine’s outdoor heritage, and safely connects people with nature through responsible recreation, sport, and science.” https://www.maine.gov/ifw/about/index.htmlWil
My painting features a smallmouth bass in pursuit of dinner in the Penobscot River. The Penobscot is New England’s second largest river, the main stem emptying into Penobscot Bay near the town of Bucksport where I first settled in Maine.
