It's a Goat's Life - small nanny goat oil painting by Debbie Grayson Lincoln

6X6 Oil on linen panel
Goats in Haiti are valuable commodities. Providing meat AND milk, they are often brought into the residents' homes at night for protection. Dogs, on the other hand, are NOT cared for and in fact are merely tolerated - as garbage cleaner-uppers, I suspect. A PET dog in Haiti is a rarity. Where children go hungry, a dog kept as a pet would almost be a blasphemy. All cultures have their priorities and although I was appalled at the way dogs are treated, I understand the reasoning and reluctantly support it. But I still don't like it...
 1 Corinthians 4:13
when we are slandered, we answer kindly. We have become the scum of the earth, the garbage of the world—right up to this moment.If you are interested in this painting, click here to send me an email.

Debbie, I REALLY love your blog!! I just now "found" you, and I intend to stop back often.
I feel as if your style (though superior to mine) has re-inspired to go back and revisit a style I have gradually been drifting away from.
I have visited many of your paintings and am impressed over and over again! Great painting! :)

Thanks, Dean - Loving animals as I do, makes it easy to paint them! And I think YOU have discovered this as well!
