Even if they are not sheep goats can be kinda cute too. My friend Sue Kotur handed me this picture of three goats. She thought I would like to paint them. She was right. So here they are.
The one thing you will see a lot of if you come to Wisconsin is cows. Yep they come in all colors. My favorite are the galloway cows. Some people refer to them as oreo cookie cows. I do look for them but don’t always find them. I’m not expert on cows but I do like to paint what I see. Meet Elise the cow.
P.S. I know this is not a galloway.
There is no snow on the ground which is unusual for January in Wisconsin. It is wet and damp. It has been like this all week.
So I started thinking of warmer weather. I took out my box of photographs looking for inspiration for a painting. Then I saw this picture that I had taken this past spring of this chipmunk who is clearly enjoying his lunch.
Yep I will paint him. He seems to enjoy strawberries as much as I do.
