Well, here it is. I have entered the competition this year, for the first time. Here is the link to the entries. https://www.flickr.com/photos/usfwshq/albums/72157710883370001
I would like to thank Paul for his guidance, critiques, and suggestions while I completed my painting many months ago.
I am not ready to post my entry, yet, because I don't want to jinx it for the competition.
My wife and I head to Maryland from Montana next week to attend the competition at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Station outside Laurel, MD. The competition is 9/27-28, and open to the public if anyone is nearby and wants to attend. Wish me luck.
