I wanted this oil painting to work. I had a nice strong start and then it seemed to fall apart the more I worked on it. I will scrape it off tomorrow. But, in the meantime, since the sun was shining, I zipped over to the Wildlife Refuge to see what was new over there.
What a treat to see Canada Geese parents and babies! These babies looked only a day old, with their downy soft fur and barely formed winglets. The parents kept careful watch over them and I kept my distance.
Ahh. I feel better now. Tomorrow I will scrape off the painting and try again.
