When I started this painting, I wanted to capture the effect of bright sunshine streaming in at an angle, bleaching the color out of the plumage on the sunlit side of the geese. This was one of my earlier efforts with a palette knife. I was really pleased with the textures I was able to get, especially the tail feathers on the front goose.

I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
