Works of Art

I have a life long friend who is a very talented artist. She lives and paints in the beauty of New Mexico. She paints people, still life, landscapes, horses and longhorns. Her works are amazing. When visiting my blog, Julia, asked if she could try painting a few of our farm animals and of course that was fine with me. I had long forgotten our conversation. I recently received an email with two attachments of her recent paintings and was I ever surprised! She painted one of our donkey’s and one of our goats. Amy the donkey is so precious and look at her personality that exudes from this photo. Our goat, Cowboy, passed away last fall so we were especially happy to have such a darling picture of him. Julia captured his eyes and his special personality and I very much love how realistic the fence wire is. How much fun to have these photos! Thanks Julia!
