Sunset Reflections

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 29.5″h X46″w, 1987.

Springtime at Greenhorn Park in Yreka, California is lovely. The lake is full, and the Canada Geese are raising their families. I was amazed when I saw the big family of geese – it was such a large brood. I later learned that geese would create large nurseries which include the goslings of several families. One set of parents will watch the gosling nursery while the other adults can feed. I thought it made an interesting painting in a beautiful setting.
