Yearly Visitor

11 x 14 oil on canvas board

This is one of our regular visitors to the Reservoir.  I took the reference photo a couple of years ago; I haven't seen any lately so I'm not really sure when they show up.  We have sea gulls from time to time, pelicans, many, many Canadian geese, plenty of mallards and various and sundry others.  I love to go out walking and watch them.   When my granddaughter was here last week, we went every day to feed the mallards and the geese.  They like bread and she enjoys feeding them.  I want to paint one of the geese soon.  Years ago I sculpted them out of papier mache and have always thought the Canadian geese were pretty although very messy!!!!
