RIPE


This is another small painting inspired by my recent trip to Greece. We saw this goat on the roadside as we drove by. She had ENORMOUS udders full of milk. The lemons that grow in gardens all over the island were equally plump.

Was it really looking that lovingly at you?

I like the painting, nicely done.

Poor animal... but your picture is really nice and funny!

Did the plump lemons also give milk?

Re-hashing Heidi artwork again?

I made it for Raja last weekend. She owns all the paintings I've made this year.

It's quite possible that in greek mythology some hero gave his goat to his beauty as symbol of love.

Matt J said...

in Greek mythology goats WERE symbols of love! Or was that the Romans . . .?!

strange cos I could've sworn I'd seen this one before. I like the colors. You doing anything tonight?

You see! I didn't know.
Keeping the tradition going!

I might get one for my wife.
Fresh milk and the always loan mowed without effort.
