Sunbathing Goats

Sunbathing Goats

Acrylic collage

This design took a complete 180 from what I thought would be a perfect flower garden. At the start I chose a dark burnt sienna background — a different color for me, and I added the bold sunflower on top. Then I was at a standstill for many weeks.

Last week I envisioned a much different composition — thanks to our three cavorting goats! The barn was added, then the goats and the ladder. The final design is humorous and makes one laugh. If you know goats, they love to dance and climb to the top of things. The giant sunflower reminds me of the Jack & the Beanstalk story. Perhaps the goats will climb that next!
