Most of my geese paintings are inspired by our experiences with Embden Geese on the lake in Noordhoek. They seemingly appeared out of nowhere. The first one we called “Mac” and I started painting him. Suddenly Mac brought a mate and then there was a whole family swimming along right in front of us. They are peaceful birds that make excellent family units. Humans could take a good lesson from how well they look after each other.
