San Ramon Art In The Park, October 2012
We were asked to paint at the San Ramon Art In The Park festival, where local San Ramon artists sell their artworks. We shared the plaza with Hien Nguyen, our neighbor from Luna Park Jennifer Kershaw, and high school student and new street painter Danielle (um, didn't get her last name). We had heard that San Ramon had had a small problem with geese congregating in their parks (not that we saw any that weekend), so thought it would be fun to do a goose themed painting. Then the only problem was thinking of an interesting goose theme to use--when Duck Duck Goose came up in a brainstorming session, we knew we had our concept. The kids are our neighbors Ava, Giana and Natalie. The ducks and goose reside in Santa Clara's Central Park, which has its own issues with waterfoul-- er, waterfowl.

Some were ready to run around the circle (or at least run).
Some were too young to run.
