Frank Mittelstadt of Beaver Dam nearly won his first Federal Duck Stamp Contest today.
Frank’s acrylic painting of a Canada Goose in early morning light was tied for first place with two other entries after the standard three rounds of voting. The painting fell from contention in the first tiebreaker vote and Frank had to settle for third place, his first top 3 finish.
Jennifer Miller of Olean, NY won the contest with a painting of Ruddy Ducks.
