Geese 1

24 x 48 oil on board
Five beautiful, huge geese crowded around me at the lake one night, so I dropped some food for them and a feeding frenzy ensued. These geese had no fear of people at all, honking loudly and looking at me like they knew me. So beautiful, and I wondered where they had been. All I am saying... is give geese a chance.

HA! Give geese a chance and something wonderful happens like this painting. Love the perspective in this!
I was just thinking of you tonight when I was looking at the fabulous portrait you did of my son!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I see a lot of ducks and geese when I visit Austin. My son & his family live there. Like the perspective on this one. Unique.
