Winter wings.






Canada geese - we love them. So long as they keep flying, we have no problem with them. It’s when they land that the trouble starts. At one time, they used to fly south for the winter. Now, we have a large resident population. That creates all sorts of trouble.

Nice aquarel. I see you are not the only one having trouble with these birds. As you write "So long as they keep flying" ......than it is OK. usavlp

This is entirely beautiful. The colours are perfect, the way you handle the paint to creat a sense of distance is envy-inducing, and the whole thing makes me feel frosty and lonesome in the best way possible. Gorgeous.

Beautiful! They winter here in Colorado. I love the sound of them flying overhead- as long as I'm not right beneath them.

Beautiful painting!

I like hearing and seeing them fly overhead, though I don't mind them stopping, either....

This is beautiful.
I guess like all of us, they need a place to go, a place to belong.

Just watch where you step and don't look up when they fly overhead. Beautiful painting. I can almost hear them honking.
