I'm one of those lucky people who has a friend who is a great artist. I think everyone should have an artist as a friend. I'm fortunate to have several.
Today James got the mail and said, "you got something from Laura (Laura Orrison, the soon-to-be famous goat artist)". I was pretty sure I knew what it was when I saw the size of the envelope. Well, I was knocked off my socks. It was even better than I thought it was going to be. First I saw Clarice. "Aww, look she painted Clarice". Clarice is one of my sweetest, gentlest goats.
This painting takes the cake, though. It's Witty, my buck, in all his Witty-ness.
Laura, you have found your calling, painting goats. Thank you so much. I can't wait to see your paintings of my donkeys.
I think I should become Laura's manager. Would anyone like a portrait of their pet? Get your checkbooks out.
