Let's Play!

This calf was born in late April of last year. The day that I visited, he was nudging other calves to butt heads or just run around the field and play.

  4. Love your calf paintings! I developed an appreciation for the beauty and exuberance of young calves (and lambs) while living in New Zealand. I love the way you show their curiosity and expressiveness.

    1. Hi Paige, I am in love with the cows as well (the real cows!). It's the challenge of trying to give them life with the tools I have at the moment that keeps me going. Thank you for commenting!
