"Awakening"


Yes, it has been a while since I have posted.  That means I have been very busy and lucky for me, I have been very busy painting, sharing and showing art in Alaska.



"Awakening"
18x24 Original Oil

While standing in a field, looking off into the distance, a flock of Snow Geese are settled on the ground of this Palmer, Alaska hayfield.  They are stopping for a quick layover on their way further north for the summer season.   It is an amazing experience to be there, focused only on their prescence, and then suddenly... one is startled... the whole flock lifts one at a time.   It's as though they are connected by an invisible string.  There is a roar of gaggles as they follow suit lifting their bodies to take to the air.   They circle around and overhead with sounds not to go unoticed, twice around until one at a time they lower themselves like a beautiful ballet, back to the ground.   They have been Awakened.

Thanks for visiting, hope you are well.
Love to hear from you.
