Art: Saanen Goats

A little while ago, Mandy contacted me requesting permission to draw inspiration from my photo of the Saanen goats. Soon after I said yes, Mandy emailed me this photo of her amazing painting.

As you may or may not recall, I took this photo during one of my summer trips in Switzerland. I had no idea at that time how popular this photo could be (do you remember Leah‘s work?)!

Mandy’s painting is going to be part of an art exhibit to be held at the Chalet Hotel Hornberger in Saanenmöser (Gstaad area) over Christmas and New Year’s so if you’re in the area, please stop in and let me know what it’s like.


It’s been at least a year since I painted anything and this fact makes me a bit depressed as I used to paint quite often. But time has moved at lightning speed this past academic year and it’s only now that I’m finding more chunks of time to paint. Here’s a piece that I worked on last week.
