Trotting to Water

Penticton artist Terry Isaac supports wetland conservation
Artwork selected for Ducks Unlimited Canada’s national collection

January 2018 – Oak Hammock Marsh, Man. – Terry Isaac of Penticton, British Columbia joins some of Canada’s most prestigious nature artists featured in Ducks Unlimited Canada’s (DUC) 2018 National Art Portfolio. By donating his artwork to DUC, Isaac is helping raise important funds for wetland conservation.

Isaac’s painting, Trotting to Water, is one of 11 pieces selected from hundreds of submissions from artists across the country.

“The National Art Portfolio is a unique program that not only promotes our country’s outstanding nature artists, but the growing need to conserve the natural areas that inspire their work,” says Michaela Bell, DUC’s national manager of retail operations.

Paintings selected for DUC’s National Art Portfolio are made into high-quality prints for use in DUC’s fundraising initiatives. Money raised supports DUC’s wetland conservation work, scientific research and education programs. Wetlands are some of the most important ecosystems on the planet. They naturally clean water, prevent floods and droughts, and help mitigate the effects of climate change by holding large amounts of carbon.

“DUC has a strong relationship with Canadian artists like Terry Isaac,” says Bell. “I’m confident his painting will be very successful in helping us raise the money we need to continue our wetland conservation work.”

Isaac draws inspiration for his artwork by observing nature, saying that he’s always “on the lookout for magical moments.” He says horses are one of his favourite subjects to paint, noting that many live wild in the Penticton, B.C. area. In Trotting to Water, he says: “I tried to capture the feeling of dust and heat as they form a line – heading for a cool drink.”

Artwork by Terry Isaac and other top Canadian nature artists are being sold at DUC community fundraising events, on art auction easels in businesses across the country and online at www.ducks.ca   

Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) is the leader in wetland conservation. A registered charity, DUC partners with government, industry, non-profit organizations and landowners to conserve wetlands that are critical to waterfowl, wildlife and the environment. www.ducks.ca
