Morning Light - Snow Goose

Morning Light - Snow Goose
7" x 5"  acrylic 
Morning's first light captures this lone snow goose and it's reflection on the calm water.  The goose is enjoying much needed rest after migrating from it's Arctic breeding grounds to it's winter range in the Central Valley of California where I was able to see it.  White in nature is never truly white and painting a white bird is a tricky proposition.  If you look closely at the original you can see a rainbow of colors in the goose's plumage.
