Goebel, 35 (at the time of the contest) is a nationally known wildlife artist.He designed the 1994 New Jersey Duck Stamp and additional fishing stamps for New Jersey, Delaware and Illinois. Goebel's oil painting of a pair of surf scoters in flight over New Jersey's southern shoreline features the historic Barnegat lighthouse in the background. This is the second time that a lighthouse has been depicted on the Federal Duck Stamp, but this design is truly unique as it is the first time ever that a recognizable landmark has ever been depicted. The previous stamp design with a lighthouse was the 1963 stamp by Edward Bierly that featured a non-specific lighthouse. The Barnegat lighthouse was completed in 1858 and its great red and white tower has stood guard over the Atlantic coast ever since. Barnegat lighthouse is a great piece of American sculpture and a superb piece of engineering. The Barnegat lighthouse was also depicted in the background of the 1991 New Jersey State Duck Stamp Print. The surf scoter is considered among the more difficult birds to depict because reference material on the species is scarce. The male surf scoter is black with large white patches on the forehead and at the nape of the neck. Its most distinctive feature is the bill, which has a black patch on each side margined behind by red, above by orange and in the front and below by a patch of white. The female is dark gray with a gray bill. Only 300 Canvas Edition were produced. Surf Scoter State Engraved by the Federal Bureau of Engraving from the original artwork.
