Portrait of a Swan?

A goose or a swan? Are they the same or different? Everyone loves swans, but a goose has a different reputation. I'm not sure to which group this intense fellow belongs, but I am glad he has joined me in the studio. The warmth of the sun and his determined personality provided a great subject. He was created on a 5x7 inch hardboard panel with oil paints.

Can you say 'personality'?! Well done.
