The Neighborhood Watch Committee

I finished this piece in early August and really like how it turned out. Brad and I enjoyed almost a week of vacation this summer in Central Utah, in the small town of Marysvale. During one of Brad's walks, around the area, he came across this house that had a very effective alarm system...You guessed it-three very noisy geese.

We owned a duck once and that one very ornery fowl would fly into frenzy whenever little screaming girls would enter the backyard. He would flap his wings, attack their toes and chase them right back into the house. Our teenage sons would have to act as protectors and carry the little girls out to the safety of the trampoline.

The thought of facing three larger, noisier and more aggressive birds doesn't really appeal to me. No matter how feisty they were, the picture was adorable and I knew the minute I saw it on our camera that I was going to have to try and paint it.
