Snow Geese in October

Snow Geese in October
There are landscapes that comfort the heart like a soft hand stitched quilt fresh off the clothesline. All tension in your system disappears as shoulders settle, and every breath fills you with more contentment. Then there are landscapes that are puzzling because something feels off, not what expect to like so much.
The photograph above is one of those for me. I knew the image goes in my paint from photographs folder. The  composition doesn't fit my senses. I'll adjust the horizontal elements, and maybe add corn stalks on the right in the painting. The trees will definitely show more foliage colors. Sketching. Thinking. Painting. Great way to spend a rainy morning. And, if I don't over think it, I'll post a photo of the painting here, sooner than later

  1. Dear Maywyn I think this is such a lovely fall scene. We get Canada geese here but not snow. I clicked to enlarge the photo to see them more closely. Looks like your colors are slowly changing like ours. Have a blessed day. Hugs!

    1. Hello Debbie,
      Many years ago, the Canada Geese were the dominant flock at Dead Creek. The snow geese move in until they are the largest gathering. Neither, however, are close to the visitor's area like the use to be in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
      A Blessed day to you!

  2. Maywyn, your ideas for a painting sound beautiful and so easy to be inspired with the gorgeous colors in this landscape. Have a great week!

    1. Hello Celia,
      A great week to you!
      The colors here are going towards peak, and at or past peak in the high elevations. Its been a vibrant red, red orange season this year.
