Foggy Arrival 8"x10" acrylic $950

Hundreds of Canada geese swarm into a foggy, open and slightly flooded, grass seed field. This is a common sight during fall and winter in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. These geese are primarily cacklers as they are small and have darker bodies than most of the other subspecies. In hand, they are almost the size of a large mallard. There distinct cackling call (as opposed to the deeper honk of the larger subspecies) is what gives them their name. This painting will also be available at the Waterfowl Festival this weekend. If you get a chance come by and visit me in the armory in downtown Easton, MD. It is a fantastic event that celebrates fall and waterfowl that the whole town participates in!!
