Hi! Happened upon your blog through the blog of Joni at Cote de Texas. Are you serious? Goat Paintings!? Not that you wouldn't know, I just never got into the antler thing, and now goats!? LOL! I don't know if I can do it. Helen's paintings are gorgeous, they're certainly of a style that I enjoy - but the subject matter. I don't even know that I've ever seen a real goat. Oy ve!

Sarcasm. I certainly hope that the goat motif doesn't become the next trend driven to the heights of design hysteria, but do I love this artist. I think it is less about the animal, and more an unexpected abstract design.
