Black and White Billy Goat

Oil Painting Goat Portrait Farm Animal Pet Portrait

Oil on Canvas, 10" x 8".

This goat looks very different from his personality.  He appears to have the markings and horns suited for a battle.  He's really a gentle sweetie though.

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!

Oil on stretched linen canvas with 3/4" staple-free edges - 8"x10"x3/4".

This is one of my favorite cow paintings from a few years ago with a calf looking out through a hole in a hay stack.  I like the image of his dark face highlighted by the sun and the shapes of the hay surrounding it also.
