Scot Storm - In The News
We are very happy things continue to be busy for Scot with his painting and continued involvement in various projects. These are the most recent highlights we would like to share with you!
Click Image For Related Information The original acrylic painting "Should Have Been There" and a autographed copy of Ducks Unlimited magazine was auctioned at the 2014 Ducks Unlimited National Convention in St. Louis, MO and raised $16,000.00 for the "Ducks".
The image of "Tranquil Water" won Scot the honor of being Ducks Unlimited's International Artist of the Year. Canvas & paper prints are available only through Ducks Unlimited through December 2014. We will have Artist Proof prints available starting in July 2015.
This is Scot's second time to earn this title. The first was in 2005 for his painting "Right Place, Wrong Time".
On September 4, 2014, Scot was notified that he had won his third Minnesota Duck Stamp competition. The image is of a harlequin drake riding the waves of rough water. Scot has always enjoyed painting water scenes and as you can see, all three of his wins included this backdrop.
Prints and stamps will be available in June 2015. Matching numbers, for all three, are still available in the Artist Proof Edition.
Ducks Unlimited has awarded Scot the 2014 DU National Conservation Stamp print. The painting is of a pair of canvasbacks floating over a South Dakota cattail slough.
The canvasback is considered, by many, to be royalty in the duck world and certainly, one of Scot's favorite birds.
Prints will be available starting in January 2015 at your local Ducks Unlimited events.

2015 Ken Greenwood Memorial Waterfowl Award Winner
NatureWorks Art Show & Sale
This was the second year this award was given in the name of Ken Greenwood...and the second year in a row Scot has won the honor.
For those who had the privilege of knowing Ken, they would all agree, "he was an incredible man that touched the lives of countless people...simply an irreplaceable individual who will be in our hearts forever."
Unexpected project for 2014....
Scot took on a new project this past year of painting an elephant ear for one of our clients who wanted to commemorate his unique Africa hunt. Scot, never one to shrink from a challenge, took on the project. The very, large ear, as you can see from the picture above, was not an ideal canvas to paint on - very textured and even had HAIR!
Happily, the final results were nothing short of STUNNING and our client was very, very pleased. Yay!!!
