A Goat

Don't-forget-The-Goats“Don’t Forget the Goats!”

Sometimes names for my paintings announce themselves to me…sometimes I struggle and have a lot of thinking to do before a name comes about. This painting of a Boer goat was easy, the whole time I was painting her I felt as if she was saying “Don’t Forget the Goats.” Taking reference photos last fall in a barn that had quite a few animals including a llama, two steers, donkeys, pigs, and chickens I met this goat. Somehow the goats were not high on my list until I realized this girl was spending an awfully long time up like this waiting for her turn to be photographed.
