Description
A farmyard scene of waddling geese heading home to the farm. The use of earthy tones and delicate brushstrokes highlights the rural qualities of the landscape. The light gently illuminates the small bodies of the geese as they walk towards a figure of a woman. To the right of the painting a small pond shimmers like a mirror. Lilly flowers and pads float with a delicate glow as the setting sun gently covers the whole scene.
