“Colorful Goat”

New Mixed Media Art Painting

Sharon Cummings

2014

I had an idea to “Color Fusion” a goat.  I absolutely adore Nubians and remember fondly life on the farm with these sweet creatures.  I have lots of pictures of goats in my stash. The only problem is that all of my photos are from around 30 to 35 years old.  They are blurry and unusable.  My wonderful collector Laura Carpenter of Texas came to my rescue.  She took the time to photograph her lovely animals and donate the results to me.  And here is what I did…

True story.  When I was a little girl, we used to sleep with the goats in the barn some nights as a “camp out”.  Me and my 3 siblings would all take our sleeping bags and nestle in the hay next to our favorite creature.  My oldest brother was always a prankster, so one night while sleeping in the barn, the rest of us decided it was time for revenge. Big brother had the unfortunate kinky hair genes.  I say unfortunate, because what we did next took a lot of undoing.  He was also a very deep sleeper.  It was a combination he would deeply regret.  The three of us gathered up the little round pellets known as goat poop and carefully embedded them all in his hair. Hundreds of those little turds all wound up in his tight kinks.  When he woke up and scratched his head it was “game on”!  We all ran….LOL

Enjoy!
