Dave Turnbaugh’s oil painting "Marsh Dweller" won the Maryland “Duck Stamp” competition held at the Patuxent Wildlife Art Show held at the National Wildlife Visitors Center in Laurel, Md. Entries are judged for artistic merit, scientific accuracy, and consideration of stamp design. Dave’s rendering of a Hooded Merganser walking through a marsh setting was compressed and reproduced in stamp form for the 2010-2011 game bird hunting license.


  Approximately 50,000 stamps are sold annually, raising nearly $0.5 million for Maryland’s game bird research and habitat enhancement programs. Since its inception in 1974, over $4.5 million in stamp revenue has been used to create and improve waterfowl migration and wintering habitats. Duck stamps are widely collected and are available through the Department of Natural Resources (www.DNR.state.md.us) or by contacting Maryland Realist.

  The Hooded Merganser is one of the more handsome specimen of the duck world, and is found exclusively in North America (the few vagrants in Europe are escapees from captivity). The Hooded Merganser's crest may be raised (as depicted by the artist) or lowered. It is a diving duck and prefers shallow bodies of water including swamps, marches, and wooded ponds. The Hooded Merganser is carnivorous, eating small fish, frogs, aquatic insects, etc., but may be seen eating some vegetation.

David T. Turnbaugh is well-known for his paintings depicting waterfowl, boats of the Chesapeake (especially skipjacks), and Mid-Atlantic landscapes. He is a native of Maryland and lives in Towson with his true love, Maureen.

In 1959, Dave earned his B.F.A. from the Maryland Institute of Fine Arts, where he studied under the late Jacques Maroger. He still uses the "Maroger-medium" in his oil paintings to achieve exceptional clarity and enduring, old-world quality.

After graduating college, Dave taught art for twelve years in Baltimore County Schools (Holabird Junior and Dundalk High). But his real passion is the art and he has now been a full-time artist for thirty-plus years.

He is an artist member of the Grand Central Art Galleries of New York City and a member of the American Society of Marine Artists. His paintings have been included in exhibits across the United States.
