Donkey Morn - burro donkey palette knife painting

8 X 8 Palette Knife Oil on board $115
THIS PAINTING HAS BEEN SOLD to a collector in Arizona
I am NOT a palette knife painter, but sometimes I like to pretend I am. My best artist buddy and collaborator in paint is Laurie Pace and SHE does palette knife!
This little fat donkey lives down the road from me, and she was silhouetted on a grassy knoll one afternoon as I came home from Granbury. Since I never go anywhere without my camera, I slammed on my brakes and caught a quick image of her before she came up to the fence to investigate me. And yes, the afternoon colors were almost this vivid! Well, in MY eyes, anyway.
Latest on Aunt Abbey: We hauled her calf, Other Brother Darryl, to the sale barn Wednesday and got a record check for a 400 pound calf. After milking her daily for 5 days (and filling the freezer with milk and cream) we decided to put one more calf on her before we dry her up in July. The pickings were pretty slim at the sale barn Monday, but I did manage to find a tiny half-Jersey heifer that looked like it might be lively and persistent enough to get past Aunt Abbey's defensive kicks. Abbey KNOWS what her calf looks like and this small red one ain't it! No, Mom, we haven't named YOUR calf yet!
1 Kings 9:3
The LORD said to him: “I have heard the prayer and plea you have made before me; I have consecrated this temple, which you have built, by putting my Name there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.
