frank w. degenhardt level-classic 5/7/2009 8:42:09 PM

Lisa- This whole series of the goose taking care of her new born children is moveing, so beautiful, and fasinating. I thank you for sharing this special moment with us.
Love the framing of this one. The colors of mom, the babies, and the backgound compliment each other. In particular I love the wing as if its hugging the baby and her head down as if shes whispering love words to her baby. The other thing that really stands out for me is the beautiful eyes of the mother. So blue and then that coloring around it are amazing.
Stunning work and series my friend.
Have a wonderful day, take care. #7497927
