Original American Oil Painting -- Goose at Twilight

Last week I took a late evening walk at Point Defiance Park. The sun was low, but still casting shadows and sparkling sunlight. As I walked down the path near the rose garden, this big goose and I converged. He was very polite. He stopped and waited; when he discovered that I was going to let him go first, he stepped across the path into the dappled evening sunlight. This 8 x 10 oil painting on gessoed hardboard represents our encounter. I especially enjoyed exaggerating the contrasting orange and blue of the shadows and sunlight.

This is a great piece! you are right, the exagerated contrast in orange and cobalt adds to the piece
