Prints Arriving

Delaware duck stamp prints
Here we are in November already! I can't believe how fast the months are going. I had every intention of posting that I had found some inspiration last month, but about the time I found it things got a little crazy around here. I ended my post that God always provides and He did. Just a few days later I received two painting commissions for Christmas presents. Unfortunately, I can't post anything about them as they are going to one of my blog and Facebook fans and I don't want to spoil the surprise, so you'll have to wait until January to see those.
The other news is that the Delaware duck stamp prints have begun to arrive. I have 700 so far that need to be signed, numbered and returned a.s.a.p. 
Me and a few of 700 prints!

Four boxes of them showed up the other day and it really started to sink in what this duck stamp win means. I feel a bit like I've stepped into someone else' life. I have become a part of duck stamp history and while I'm excited about that I'm humbled as well. This couldn't really be me, could it? Well, apparently it is because no one else will be signing all those prints! 
Most of these prints will be returned to Delaware and will be available for sale some time between April and July 2017. The stamp itself will not be available until July 2017. I will be keeping 150 Artists Proofs and some of those will be for sale some time soon. I will post the information here with links to Delaware's site as those details become available. Until then it's back to painting and signing!
