Woolly Calf in Hay

Oil Painting Cow Art Portrait Farm Animals Country Bovine

Sleepy Foal

Oil Painting Horse Art Portrait Farm Animals Country Equine

Oil on Raymar panel, 11" x 14".

I was interested in the light falling on the foal's body and the deep shadows establishing her form.  Her sleepy face was an additional delight!  With her mother so near she looked safe and satisfied.

Black and White Billy Goat

Oil Painting Goat Portrait Farm Animal Pet Portrait

Wise and Ageless Pug

Oil Painting Dog Portrait Animal Pet

Oil on Canvas, 12" x 9".

I finished another portrait of my then elder pug, Mabel.  My lovely sweetheart passed into spirit in July at the wise old age of fifteen years and will always remain my faithful but very outspoken companion in life!  I am still in awe at how she retained her funny, joyful and accepting attitude throughout her sometimes difficult life.  She radiated beauty!

Poppy Hillside
