young one

 This calf has not quite grown into it's ears yet.  I painted this Sunday before I had a meltdown painting session. Yesterday I  spent three or more hours painting a scene only to scrape it off after trying to make it read.  It never learned to read.
This calf is painted on a 5 x 7" linen canvas.sold

  1. I can't count the days I have where nothing works! I really like this—It's verging on the abstract with its flat green background. Reads wonderfully as shapes and colors. Gorgeous red streak descending from his chin. Love the colors and textures!

  2. I had one of those sessions yesterday, too! I love the shapes and colors in this calf, and it's so cute!

  3. A beautiful baby you've painted, Carol! Meltdowns of any kind just cannot be good! Ah well, a new day, a fresh pair of eyes!
