Lake Merritt is a beautiful oasis of sparkling water and green parkland right in the middle of the large metropolis of Oakland, CA. Strolling the lawns and walkways surrounding the lake, you’re likely to encounter multiple clusters of resident ducks and geese dozing, waddling, and swimming. The geese in particular like to sail in flotillas around a small island just offshore. I was lucky enough to get a beautiful shot of them rounding the island’s corner and I knew instantly that I would turn it into a painting.
