Green Goats

Contact me about this painting
I came across this cast of sketchy characters on a trip to Kentucky back in the fall. They must have been really confused/disappointed when I didn't produce a bucket of feed for their trouble (they followed me around like lost puppies)! After living in sunny New Mexico~ it was interesting to paint the subtle definition of color & form from cloud diffused light.

Nice blog. Very painterly style. Interesting visualizations on your framing idea. How is it going over with the public?

Gary~ YOU ARE my public! Thank you for the compliments :>) Happy New Year to you too!

Thanks Liz~ I really DID feel like an opportunist~ soo terrible! I was close enough to see the REAL chuck wagon show up about five minutes later~ so I felt less guilt. lol

Hello Tom, I have not received any posts in my follower thing from you and I see that I have been missing some beautiful work -- wish someone would explain why blogger does this? Love your recent work, especially the large sheep and the Albuquerque sky painting...sorry don't remember their titles. Outstanding work!

Love what you have been doing lately. The wonderful goats and fantastic frames!

I have the same problem of not receiving any post like Angela. So every so often I have to check and see what you are up too. You never disappoint me either...your work is amazing!

Thanks Don! I feel like there are some strokes I like better than others! My mental critiques are much harsher! lol

Angela & Carol~ My posts are so staggered & sporadic, I'm just thankful you DO check in! Thanks for the compliments!
