I painted this same photo a few months ago and my good friends bought it for their lake house. The original is painted on a 2 x 2' canvas. I asked their permission to paint the photo again and they said it would be fine for a small fee. (jk) This one is painted on a 3 x 3' canvas. I intentionally did not look at the first painting before I started this one. I used the same cropping but was curious if I would interpret the colors the same way. This one is different but very similiar. I could not find the original painting photo so if you want to see it, go back about four months in my blog. I never want to take time off from painting to get organized. A problem!
I have been busy painting for several shows. Oct 1st is an annual show in the Birmingham area, the "Bluff Park Art Show". This is the 48th year of existence and it is a BIG show with artists coming from all over. I told you about the North Carolina show Oct 8th in my last post. Last, but definitely not least....I am one of the featured artists in DK Gallery in Marietta , Georgia Oct 7. The show is all about creatures. They have about seven or eight of my creatures on display with some other great artists.
Oh yeah, I am leaving for Italy Thursday. How cool is that?sold

Je me réjouis de vous retrouver après une si longue absence...ReplyDelete
Vos oies sont terribles! j'ai l'impression qu'elles vont arriver sur mon clavier!
J'aime le jeu de la lumière qui inonde votre peinture et qui apporte un magnifique contraste avec vos couleurs harmonieuses.
Oh, you are back to painting the geese! I enjoy them every time you do them :) You always inject such wonderful color into their whites!ReplyDelete
Moving on they are! You can just see the determination in their expressions! Love 'em! Best wishes for all your exciting shows and travel to Italy! I am longing to go again. It is beautiful. Safe travels.ReplyDelete
Very cool that you are able to visit Italy. Have a wonderful time, Carol! Love this gaggle of geese to. I know I've stopped my car on the highways and roads and streets to let one cross before me.ReplyDelete
Love this one just as much as the first. You have captured the movement of the busy geese on a mission. Love the light on them and the colors are fabulous! Congrats on all the good things you have going on! AND- Italy:) I am all smiles for you. Have a wonderful time- can't wait to hear about it!!ReplyDelete
GREAT one! Have a wonderful trip to Italy...color me jealous!ReplyDelete
These guys have so much personality. Love the paint quality and brushwork. Enjoying all your beach bodies. Well done.ReplyDelete
Have a great trip.
Carol these guys are just gorgeous!! Your colors are fabulous and I would love to see this in person, I'm sure the size is just breathtaking! And Italy, I'm jealous, I love it there, can't get enough. I'm sure you will come home full of inspiration!ReplyDelete
LOVE. IT. I want to hear all about Italy too. We need to get together soon...maybe after your Oct 8th show? See you at Bluff Park!ReplyDelete
Very, very cool! and all your shows - you're on FIRE girl! and I am seriously loving these big geese!ReplyDelete
This is spectacular. Love the colors, love the subject matter and love the movement you captured.ReplyDelete
I'm crazy about all your geese and your beach women, especially the single one with the "wrong" composition. She's at that stage of life where she's perfectly fine with a broken rule like that!ReplyDelete
SO excited to come home from Athens Art on the Square with this painting. It's beautiful, and we will treasure it forever! Thank you!ReplyDelete
