Today's post is an update about the gosling hatched 6 weeks ago at my studio headquarters in Lander, Wyoming. See posts #247 and #248; May 30 and 31.
The gray gander has been released from his pen and the gaggle is together now that the gosling has grown. Time will tell, during mating, if the gosling is a goose or a gander. The young one is maturing with gray and white markings.
Observing, drawing, and photographing animals, whether domestic or wild,
provide a source of reference for future etchings, paintings, and sculptures.
