OMG! I thought this was a photograph at first glance. I can't believe the detail. The water on either side of the goose...one side ripples and smooth and the other side in motion with bubbles. The different pattern of the feathers are beautiful and the sun shinning only on a portion of the back. The eyeball has the light reflection too. I have often wondered how the painter thinks of a subject to paint and then it travels down the arm to the hand and then onto the canvas. ha ha I think it's amazing. Great painting!
