Painting #13 Goose On The River



This painting comes from a photo I took two years ago when I took the grands on a nature walk in a nature preserve in autumn.  This goose was just one of lots of wildlife that we saw.


The goose was floating on the river with wonderful reflections and that was my purpose in painting this: reflections.


Actually, today I discovered I could use it for writing haiku to the prompt of 'peace', so it is multi-purposed.
Brambles and tall weeds
Hiding the goose beyond me
Enjoying her peace
and
Peace on the river
A goose floating so serene
Wishing for the same


There is something so appealing to me to write haiku to accompany a painting.

This is beautiful, Teri. You have done a great job of giving a sense of depth in this painting. And your goose and his reflection are lovely~~

Nice use of a limited palette, Teri! This definitely imparts a feel of peace and I would say happiness as well.

I love the haiku you added, Teri, and the duck is so serene.

I particularily like the goose and brambles Haiku. I think Haiku and art were meant to go together. Yours fit each other beautifully.
