Hard to Get

I'm fortunate to live across from an awesome organic farm, Peacemeal Farm. Not only do we get the best fresh veggies, they also have critters sometimes. A couple of years ago they had a group of Nubian goats. I spent quite a bit of time with the young ones photographing and marveling. Remember the large blob of Burnt Umber I squeezed out to paint our chocolate lab a couple of weeks ago? (See this post) Well, the blob was still around, so I figured this goat would be the perfect subject to use it up. How wrong I was! Not a bit of brown anywhere on it...except the under painting. 
Oil on panel, 6" x 6", $100 + $10 domestic shipping

I love the goat -- so colorful! Have you ever painted a horse? That would put me in 7th Heaven!!
