When Paul Makuchal won the 39th annual Maryland Migratory Game Bird Stamp Design Contest last month, he didn't think about it being his third win. He was humbled. “It was a great surprise when I won. It's a pretty competitive art contest,” said Makuchal, 36, of Pocomoke City. “There are a lot of good artists in Maryland and a couple of them have won the federal contest, which is a really prestigious prize. So it's definitely an honor to win in a state that has a really competitive field of artists.” Makuchal with his painting “Peaceful Swim,” inspired by a photograph of a lesser scaup, a species of North American diving duck.

The sculptures, painted in patinas of green, pink, silver and brown and appearing to hang from wall hooks ready for cooking, are surrounded by tear sheets from old outdoor magazines, dusty reels and other fishing memorabilia.

It's fall in Easton. The leaves are changing colors, there's a chill in the air and wildlife is all around: geese, ducks, hunting dogs, falcons, cheetahs, African buffalo. At least there will be artworks depicting all of those animals and more tomorrow through Sunday at the annual Waterfowl Festival in Easton. Originally, the festival was held to showcase decoys, carvings and waterfowl art while hunters were in Easton for goose season. As the festival celebrates its 30th year, goose hunting has been suspended on the Eastern Shore but the festival has grown to include more artists from across the country, additional exhibits, family events and entertainment, spreading out over 16 venues.
