This is a beautiful Print ( signed and numbered) of a Canada Goose. It has been matted in a nice frame along with the Federal Migratory Bird Stamp with a Canada Goose on it. Robert Hautman first winning design was the 1997-1998 stamp featuring a majestic solitary Canada goose. Since his 1997-1998 Federal win Robert has painted the 1999 Texas Duck Stamp, the 1999 SCWA Stamp, and was selected to paint the 2001-2002 New Jersey Duck Stamp. He also won the Minnesota Duck Stamp for 2001-2002.
Robert comes from an artistic family of nine including brothers Jim and Joe who are past Federal Duck Stamp winners. In fact, Robert's 2001-2002 win the sixth Federal win for the Hautman dynasty since Jim's first win in the 1989-90 contest.
Hautman credits his success to the influence of his parents and a supportive family environment. His mother Elaine is ana accomplished painter; and his late father Tom bestowed on his family a love of the outdoors and a commitment to wildlife conservation.
Robert began his wildlife painting career in 1983 painting "Birds on Boards," and selling at local art fairs, In 1987 he won his first contest, the Minnesota Duck stamp, with a pair of Buffleheads. He has been painting, doing shows, and winning contests ever since. The Hautman name and elements from Robert's studio were used in the Academy Award winning movie "Fargo." The Canada Goose is a wild goose and is native to arctic and temperate regions of North America, having a black head and neck, white patches on the face, and a brownish-gray body. The black head and neck with white "chinstrap" distinguish the Canada Goose from all other goose species, with the exception of the Barnacle Goose.
