There was a moment during my career as an artist that I pretty much etched and painted only waterfowl. I’m very much concerned about the protection and preservation of our natural heritage, and attempted to promote my views through the promotion of waterfowl and their habitat. Those were very good years wandering various marsh habitats in all kinds of weather observing waterfowl, and the many other creatures that call the marsh their home. I made a lot of sketches, produced a lot of etchings and paintings, and met many wonderful persons who shared my beliefs and passion for wildlife preservation. I believe that we accomplished quite a lot for our efforts, and am hopeful that my waterfowl art continues to remind that there’s nothing more important than protecting and preserving our natural heritage for future generations.

It was one of those evenings on the marsh when there was a dramatic sunset,
and the geese were flying back from grazing out on the fields.
