A Sudden Departure (2016)

'A Sudden Departure' became a painting after seeing the beautiful white geese on a lake in the Melborne Beach area of Florida. The white and orange color of the birds and their reflections in the blue water caught my eye as they began to lift off. Because of their weight, it took them time and distance creating a trail of foam and splash in the water. It was a challenge for me to paint and capture the motion and movement in the water which was necessary for both interest and contrast within the painting.
