This painting is based off a wetland in Minnesota. When I worked for the USFWS one summer I helped restore drained wetlands near the town of Fergus Falls. My old supervisor had brought me back to a spot last year I had helped survey before my job ended there. The last time I had seen this location it was more or less a pasture of grass. A few years later and wow! What a success story. They do such great work there at the Fish and Wildlife Service and it just shows the how much of a positive impact the duck stamp program has on our lands.
I tried to capture this spot in such a way that honored its beauty. A pair of birds cruise by one cool fall evening, just as the sun peeks through before setting.

When I received my prints from Chuck, they were packaged well, delivered timely and gorgeous! The print was well done, colors vibrant and clear. There was a helpful insert about the size mat and frame this print would work with. That will save me much time and money figuring out the right one. I only wish I could afford an original of his work! But these will look great on my wall after I get them framed. Thank you, Chuck Black!
