Nubian Goat – Ceramic Sculpture

I was dusting today…rather than making art. I have also been thinking about which direction I should go next with my art.

Now that I have this sculpture all cleaned up I decided to share it on my blog. 
This is a sculpture of our first goat Olivia. She was a Nubian goat. They are my favorite breed.
Nubians are very personable, but probably least tolerant of winter weather. Their long ears get cold easily.
A happy goat is either eating or chewing their cud.
The clay was high fired and then I painted it with washes of acrylic paint. The sculpture is about 12” long.
Time to get back to cleaning…
