Geese 2 - Study


8 x 10 oil on canvas, private collection
The color in the top detail is closer to true although it is overall really warmer and darker even than this. Continuing back to the geese we saw at the lake last summer. They seemed always to follow the leader, but in this image one wasn't so sure about the plan. This painting is for Vern Schwarz for our Flying Moleskins project. See Vern, I told you I wouldn't forget you. It will be on its way to you when it dries.

La belle saison arrive, elles vont être heureuses de prendre de bons petits bains...
Très jolie ces oies.

I had a chance to go back and look at some of your past works. very nice but these geese are my favorites. They are well drawn, well painted and they capture the personality of the geese.
