This is the first time in twenty-six years that the subject for the Federal Waterfowl stamp has been a swan. I have a thing for the duck stamp... All twenty-six have been portraits just like this one. I may be a bit slower getting them to subscribers this year, since I have a puppy in the studio. He's a water dog (Golden Retriever) and already knows how to fetch. He will, however, be fetching no Trumpeter Swans.
