Snow Park (Goose Park), ink & watercolor

I meant to take a walk at lunch today but when I saw this old lady feeding the geese I had to stop and sketch. This is a little park near my office in downtown Oakland called “Snow Park” but a better name would be “Goose Poop Park” since it’s home to the many Canadian geese who don’t seem to feel the need to head north or south any longer.

I drew the faces of these subway riders on my way to work this morning. I drew the feet on the way home. That guy was holding his juice on the floor with his feet.

  1. Great sketches Jana – our park nearby has a similiar situation (watch your step!) with Egyptian geese who seem to hang around all year. I have passed on the ‘Kreativ Award’ to you from my blog – please don’t feel obliged (I think I’m about out of 7 things to say now!) – but just an appreciation of the fun and inspiration your blog gives me!

    • Watch your step is right! Thanks so much for the award. As I said on your blog, you made great use of the award yourself with your wonderful and charming illustrations of your 7 things. I decided a while back not to participate in the memes anymore myself, but it’s a delight to be thought of for it. Thanks! Jana

  2. Fun sketches, Jana, and I have to agree with CathyG on all points– we once had two geese on our farm who were
    amazing.

    • I love watching the geese, they’re so amusing. I was going to try to draw in all the bits of fluff and feathers floating around the scene, as well as the goose turds everywhere, but decided not to (and needed to get back to work so had to stop anyway). Jana
