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.

The lake at Greenhorn Park, Yreka, California was home to many waterfowl of diverse species that were year-round residents, and of those waterfowl species, the Canada Geese were abundant. Every spring the Canada Geese would rear their young, so I was often treated to seeing cute goslings. I did this painting of one of those families.

I saw what appeared to be a gigantic family of Canada Geese, but it actually was a nursery of goslings, and this pair of adults was looking out for the goslings of other geese, as well as their own goslings. I saw this scene at Gray Lodge Wildlife Refuge in northern California.
