Peter Mathios, my favorite wildlife artist of all time has just been nominated for the 2010 Duck's Unlimited Artist of the Year with his painting "Teal Reflections"! Okay, I confess, he's the only wildlife artist that I know of...and he's married to my sister-in-law. But, I would still think he's fabulous even if he wasn't in the family.
Peter won this distinguished honor last year for his painting "Evening Sprig." If you want to check out this year's nominees and (hopefully) vote for Peter, go here! Good luck Peter...and Happy Birthday, brother!
