Another of my "cow series". A few months ago my bakkie (pick-up truck) broke down in the middle of nowhere. Something went wrong with the pc and me and my mother was stuck for more than two weeks. Luckily she knew a sheep farmer close by and we lived in an abandoned farm building (with no electricity of furniture - luckily we had water and a small gas stove and a few mattresses to sleep on, till they fix my bakkie. Meanwhile I did a lot of plein air paintings and giving bottle to some of the baby goats there that lost their mothers. That is going to be the next painting.

Thank you Lori and Britt for your kind comments.  Barry would love to know that!  Yes, the VAA course make a huge change on my work and I am very glad I did the whole course and did not stop in the middle.  It is a lot of work, but it is worth the effort and many many hours (years).   And then of course Richards workshops as well.  It is nice to know there is a place online you can learn so much about art.  And I am still learning.  Well, do you ever stop?
