- Oil Painting of a Ring-necked Pheasant and Brittany Dog -

A painting of a male ring-necked pheasant and a Brittany hunting dog has been chosen by a panel of judges as the winning entry in the 2015-2016 California Upland Game Bird Stamp Art Contest. The painting was created by Roberta "Roby" Baer of Redding, the first California artist to win the honor since the 2011-2012 contest. Sponsored by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), the annual contest is held to determine the offical design for the upcoming years California Upland Game Bird Stamp. Artists submitted their own original depiction of a ring-necked pheasant. The entries were judged by a panel of experts who were selected for their knowledge in the fields of ornithology, conservation, art and printing. Designs were judged on originality, artistc composition, anatomical accuracy and suitability for reproduction as a stamp and print. The judges praised the acute realism of the winning entry and one noted the "remarkable level of detail" evident in Baer's rendering of the pheasant. The realism that impressed the judging panel was inspired by Baer's fond memories of youthful adventures in the outdoors. "When the species for this contest was announced, it brought up old memories of hiking when I was a kid growing up in the country," said Baer, a wildlife artist who was raised in Palo Cedro (Shasta County). "I remember seeing those stunning pheasants all the time and hearing their distinctive sound." For me, it was like going back home when I was painting."
