When I lived in New Hampshire, I toured a handful of charming, rural towns with a lot of character and farm animals!! The goats in particular were so interesting to me. From their funny looks to their silly behavior, whats not to love?!
To me, this goat had a quirky, yet lovable, expression - perfect for painting! And his rich brown coat inspired me to do a vibrant turquoise-and-gold patterned background. Gustav may be small but he is bold and interesting!! He would be a great statement piece in any stylish home!!
