"Canada Dawn" 8x10 acrylic on masonite

There are times in the field when I just know I'm onto something good. I shot the reference photos for this painting almost a year ago as the sun was coming up on a nearby lake. Geese were honking somewhere in the distance and this lone goose stood at attention watching the horizon... as if hoping for company... or maybe a returning mate.
The ice is quickly disappearing here in northwestern Pennsylvania... and soon I'll be back out there with my sketch books and camera gear looking for other inspiring scenes.
