I started this one a while ago and let it percolate a bit. I had an image in my mind and it wasn’t quite showing up on the canvas the way I had envisioned it. So I worked on other things and let it sit. Sometimes I just need to mix it up a bit and give certain paintings a little time to breath…or is it age?
I took the photograph that this painting is based on at the local petting zoo. The goats that greet you at the fence are just so sweet. You would think they were dogs looking to be adopted. Really I think they are just hoping you have some of the got food from the little vending machine, but they will settle for a scratch on the nose.
