Geese at Dawn

oil on panel - 17"x 12"
1963

Collection of Jim Seger
Newton, Kansas
The fraternal uncle of the Nicodemus
cousins, Uncle Billy, had some old oil
paints lying around the house.  He
offered them to Seger, and this is the
result -- the twelve-year-old's first oil
painting.  Little did he know he would
end up in Delaware, where geese are
abundant, and everyone paints them.
