A painting of ringed-neck ducks by Jim Denney of Alexander City, Ala., is the winner of the 2011 Alabama Waterfowl Stamp Art Contest. The artwork will be featured the 2012-2013 Alabama Waterfowl Stamp.
The contest is sponsored by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF), and is open to resident Alabama artists only.
Denney is flattered to have his artwork selected as the winner for the second time in as many entries. "It’s a big honor. There are some really good artists in this state," he said.
