This goat is the third in a series of farm animals from Sprout Creek Farm in Poughkeepsie, NY. It’s a wonderful place with a wonderful mission where kids and volunteers learn to care for the animals. Sometimes I wish I were a kid again for all the amazing opportunities to engage with nature.
However, painting a subject is a very intimate experience for a painter and I love engaging with wildlife in this manner. And so often animals make me laugh. The characteristic ears going in different direction of these goats brings a smile to my face.
