Changing trees...

I decided I didn't like that bent tree, it was too much of a focal point...added a downed tree in the snow also...

Geese at the easel today...

The geese...

Image
It took me some time to settle on the placement of the geese....composition vs. where they were when I saw them....finally composition won....there is still a LOT more to add but today I accomplished the "feeling" of it, exactly what I aimed to do.

Foggy Frosty Painting...

Image
I went for an early morning walk to the area where the geese nest, where last March I found the inspiration for the "Spring Squabble" painting....this March there is a lot more snow there and the waterway is still partially frozen, but I was delighted to find one pair of geese there....
It was very foggy and the trees all had frost on them....so I am going to try to recreate that on this piece of paper....and will add the geese, who I saw only for a moment before they flew.
