Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

Our geese are the inspiration for this painting. The geese are a fascinating creature and sitting on our steps watching them is a pleasant and relaxing activity. Unfortunately though the yard where our geese reside is not very pleasing to the eye, there are bushes and just a netting fence around it. The pond is not big either. So when one morning the light and shadows were really lovely I took some photos and then proceeded to give our geese a nicer environment, at least in theis painting. The distance background is true to life just not the forground setting. The goslings under the middle goose were actually our geese when they were babies :)

Drawing has always been a part of how I express myself. In 2004, I began painting with acrylics. Since 2008 I have mostly used Genesis heat-set oils.
Colour excites me and especially the way light plays on colour. All subject matters are potential paintings but I do prefer to have some sort of emotional connection with what I paint.

    Well you did an excellent job placing them in a beautiful environment. I too love the watch them, we have the Canadian Geese close to our home, not the white variety like you have.

  • Much appreciate your comment Jim. Thanks :)
