Andrew Wagstaff - The Citizen Local artist Arlene Collins had one of her paintings, Maple Nell, selected to be a part of Ducks Unlimited Canadas National Art Portfolio program. She was one of more than 700 artists from across the country who submitted work to the competition.
CANNONVILLE - Arlene Collins was allowed to submit 10 paintings to the Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) National Art Portfolio program, but at first could only decide on nine.
After much deliberation with her husband Corlas, she finally decided to submit as the 10th painting Maple Nell, an early piece she completed in 1999. It proved to be the right choice.
I had nine new ones, and thought we had to fill it with something, so we just threw this one in, she said. And it got selected.
