Another miniature

5.75" X 9"
Original Oil

Several years ago at the Waterfowl Festival, three of us were up before dawn so we could take a drive down to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. With the show opening that evening and the previous day working to set-up my paintings, I was not enthused when the alarm sounded. As a matter of fact, I almost begged off.

It wasn't long before we were driving beside spent fields on the way to the Refuge when I spotted snow geese. I was so excited that I think I yelled out to stop and then we made our way down a side road. The light was lovely with the sun barely above the horizon.

I'm glad I got up early.
