When I showed my teacher, Diane Tesler, the above picture I took at Solomons Island, MD, she told me to keep it as a photo. Apparently, it was too cute for her taste. But she is in Indiana on vacation, and I am free to paint whatever I feel like. So I painted "Ducks and Geese" today.
How can you resist the charm of this tableau? Three geese decked in bright yellow rain gear were so jaunty that I and my friends burst out laughing when we spotted it while driving by. The house owner obviously had a terrific sense of humor. What made it even funnier was the two real ducks that happened to be there, as if they were checking them out. I could almost hear one of them saying "if they are real, I am Donald Duck!"
