 That sideways look. So suspicious. He finally took a chance and ambled over to me and was rewarded with a lovely back scratch. This boy has traveled to the UK.

Best Therapy Ever

Our companion animals, the birds at our feeders, the chipmunk who sleeps in my friend’s house all make us remember who and where we are. I happen to find peace in the company of cows and hope you’ve got a touchstone animal who brings your awareness to the present as well. Who is your calm touchstone?

I met Ella some time ago and couldn’t get her out of mind. This painting is a smaller version in oil in preparation for larger pieces in pastel and oil.

Another lesson learned from this pandemic period is gratitude for what I had taken for granted. Like the weekly visit to a locally preserved farm. No more cow baths for me and back scratches for the herd.
Levi is a sassy bull calf who is learning how to be a grownup. I met him a few weeks prior to the shutdown.

Dolly lives with her pals which include goats and donkeys. I think that's why she looks so smug and happy!

Artist Support Pledge

Just reading about this international movement on Jeanne Rosier Smith's feed  while perusing Instagram.

 Matthew Burrows     
created an Instagram page for artists to help themselves and others during this period of cancelled shows, workshops, and gallery closings. The threshold price of each piece is 200. and after an artist reaches 1000. in sales, they promise to purchase the work of another artist.

My initial offering is a painting of a Boer goat named Winnie on my Instagram feed
Winnie had to be persuaded to take a break from landscaping to pose for the shot.
