Painting and Goats

Sometimes I feel pretty out of sorts when I return from visiting family if there is a fair amount of drama and strain. This was one of those trips. We all have them.

A bit off and down today, so I really have just messed around today. I did finally upload "Pen" to the website, re shot a few small paintings and updated my painting records. I am a little behind on my narratives, so I plan to get back to those and "Nee" as a priority in the next few days.

My dad has a small farm and I always enjoy visiting with the animals while I am there. I took a few photos of the goats.



This is Dexter, Big Daddy.

Momma and one of the new babies. She had two not long ago as seen here with my sister, Sarah (photo by Katie):

Hi
Thanks for sharing your photos with us. My son Arthur's loves goats.

They really are pretty cute characters, aren't they? I don't know why they make me laugh. Thanks for sharing. Glad your are back home, safe & sound.

I know the feeling of being emotionally drained after dealing with family drama. It's so nice to see the gorgeous goats. The top one looks to be showing off for the camera. I see by your sister's photo, beautiful women run in your family...hugs.

Looks like good source material to me!

Precious goats! And ditto Sheila's comment. Sometimes the anticipation of family gatherings far exceeds the reality.
