The graceful flight of Canada geese, their extended necks moving with the powerful beat of their wings, is an exceptional sight. Who has not thrilled to a sudden honking in the sky and looked up to discover a V-formation of these splendid birds passing overhead?

The best-known species of geese on the North American continent, "Branta canadensis" may be found nearly everywhere. In their wild state they are migratory, flying south in the fall to search for food and back to their far northern breeding areas in early spring while winter winds still sweep over the tundra. Canada geese mate for life, their close knit families remaining together until after they return north, when the young birds leave the parent pair and go their own way.


Mort Solberg
Solberg adds, "To paint what you see is one thing but to feel what you see and to be able to paint that impression is something else again." The artist has created a distinctive, timeless style by contrasting loose and flowing forms with sharp edges and tight definition. His interest in art began early and he pursued it through the years at the West Technical High School and the Cleveland Institute of Art. Following graduation, Solberg entered the world of commercial art, first working at an art studio, then for American Greetings. He was content to work successfully in that field until a job as art director for another card copy brought him west. There he was inspired to explore photography, eventually returning to painting with a new point of view and a vital new approach. The result has been art that has been lauded across the continent. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art and the American Bicentennial Gallery, among others. His honors include a purchase award from the National Watercolor Society’s top award, and an award of merit from the Society of Animal Artists. Solberg is a member of the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society. The result is also art that has been lauded across the continent. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art and the American Bicentennial Gallery, among others.
