Spring Goose 8 X 10 Oil


Early this Spring, I went out with some fellow artists to capture some of that spring blush on the landscape - those beautiful colors that appear before everything starts to turn green. We stopped at this shallow springs, and a goose hopped into the water from the edge of the bank where he had been restinig and started to swim toward us. Made for some great photos! I am sure he thought we had some food for him...

Really inviting painting, Claire! I like the multitude of colors in the water plus the reflection of the out of view barn! Great!

Wow, this painting really caught my eye. Gorgeous reflections and the touch of red works so amazingly well. It feels very calming, and you can almost "smell" the season.

This a lovely painting; I especially like the reflections.

Claire said...

Thank you, Pat. I really appreciate your comments.

Claire said...

Thanks, Dean! I was hoping that the red barn reflection wouldn't be confusing. Glad you liked it.

Claire said...
