2nd Place at Delaware Trout Stamp Competition!!

I've got some good news for those who were wondering how I placed in the 2011 Delaware Trout Stamp
Competition. The brown trout above got 2nd place and the brook trout I did made it to the second round! I know, if you ain't first your last...but I was merely hoping to get a top 5 finish, and that in itself is tough considering the amazing works from very accomplished artists that enter each year. I want to thank Charles Craumer again, owner of 307 Outfitters in WY, for the reference photo. If you want to catch one of these big browns give him a shout . I really wished I could have been there to see all the incredible artwork. I am really honored that my artwork was thought good enough to receive second place and the first place piece by Jeffrey Kleinfelter was just awesome. I have alot of respect for these great artists and I'm honored just to be thrown in the mix with them.  Now I must begin my ideas for the 2012 competition! I would like to enter the duck competitions, but I really enjoy getting reference material for fish.............if mallards start taking a clouser on the swing, then we will see.
