1557 Homecoming

This couple were the most vocal of the Canada geese who watched my every move while I painted #1556 "Awakening Wetland". The bonded pair were also equally bonded to the beauty of Singleton Lake. They seemed to have claimed these particular rocks as their own and repeatedly rushed at the other pairs who came too close for their liking. With their necks low and threatening, they were an intimidating pair of geese. They didn't try those threats on me. They would also not pose for me so this painting was mainly a studio work.
This painting is quite similar in composition to #1516 "Ma and Pa Canada". The water of Singleton Lake is much more clear and blue.
