Zz Stamp 2003 - 2004 Federal Duck Stamp Print - Snow Geese By Ron Louque

2003 - 2004 Federal Duck Stamp Print - Snow Geese by Ron Louque features a beautifully back lit pair of snow geese flying out over a bay at sunset with a lighthouse in the background. In Honor of Our God and His Magnificent Creation On Oct. 17, 2002 Ron Louque was announced the winner of the 2002 Federal Duck Stamp Contest. His majestic depiction of a pair of Snow Geese over the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge took 1st Place honors over 249 other entries, and then graced the 2003-04 federal waterfowl hunting stamp which is purchased by hunters and stamp collectors nation-wide. Funds raised from the stamp sales are used to purchase wetland habitats across America for the preservation of waterfowl and other wildlife species. The year 2003 marked the 70th anniversary of the Federal Duck Stamp program, and the 100th year anniversary of the national wildlife refuge system. The coveted Federal Duck Stamp Art Contest is known as the most prestigious and lucrative art competition in the world. The career of the winning artist is enhanced greatly by receiving this high honor, and the financial rewards are significant. This was Louque's 30th year to enter the contest that he had come so close to winning numerous times before. Prior to winning the federal contest, Louque had already won 27 other State Conservation Stamp Contests, so he is no stranger to this field of endeavor. Ron Louque has been a practicing professional nature artist since 1974, and is nationally known for his 28 stamp awards across the nation. His paintings have also appeared in national publications such as Ducks Unlimited, Audubon, National Wildlife, Plow & Hearth, and many others.
