When it comes to selling art, most likely it is not disputed any publicity of one’s artwork is good publicity.  The above artwork piece by Monte was completed for a donation in 1981 to Ducks Unlimited for a fund raising auction.  From time to time, Monte would do such things for commercial purposes.  Monte was conflicted regarding organizations such as Ducks Unlimited.  To Monte, while Ducks Unlimited does have a stated goal of developing and protecting habitat for waterfowl, it also has an  interest of such habitat for the purposes of hunting.

As Monte aged, his opinion of organizations such as Ducks Unlimited grew much harsher, while his opinions of organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, GreenPeace and The Seirra Club grew more fond.
