12 days of farm animals! In promotion of my new Etsy store featuring my farm animal prints, I thought I’d share a little story about the inspiration behind each piece of art. Day 8: “Canadian Beauty”. Rural living gives a person a real connection to nature, the land and the changing of seasons. The Canada Goose’s arrival in spring and departure in winter is a sure sign of that change. When they first arrive in spring, all of us Canadians rejoice because we’ve survived another winter! When they leave in the fall, it’s a sure sign that winter is back on our doorstep. I always chuckle at the late leavers flying overhead after the season’s first blizzard. As I listen to their honking I can almost imagine a female goose chiding her mate, “I told you we should have left last week, Harold!” Sometimes I envy those geese leaving our long cold winters behind, but I know they’ll be back because the Canadian Beauty knows, just like I do, that this is home.
