A painting by Robert Steiner, of San Francisco, has been chosen as the winning entry in the 2012 California Duck Stamp Contest. The painting, which depicts three Aleutian Canada geese in flight over Butte Sink in the Sacramento Valley, edged out nine other entries to become the official design for the 2012-13 stamp during a contest June 28 in Sacramento.
“I am elated,” said Steiner. “I wanted to make this a California duck stamp. I wanted it to be recognizable as a California scene.”
