Art of the Day: Friday March 18, 2011

"These Billy Goats Rock!"

- by Tracey Allyn Greene

This week's theme: Chickens, Goats and Pigs

This is where something about the theme is found in the Art of the Day layout. Usually it's something informative or why that theme has been chosen. If you keep reading you'll notice that there's nothing like that here this week. Why? Because Chickens, Goats and Pigs is this week's Art of the Day theme for no particular reason other than it seemed like a good idea.


Art: These Billy Goats Rock! by Artist Tracey Allyn Greene
Created for the February Nibblefest Art Contest on Ebay, theme Fairy Tales, this piece was inspired by the story Billy Goats Gruff, and how they manage to outwit a troll and get to greener pastures, where they live fat and happy. These three goats were a joy to paint, based on three goats that a friend of mine owns. They are way cute, and when I saw them, I knew they'd be perfect muses for the Billy Goats Gruff piece! This is a large piece, weighing roughly 12 pounds, thank goodness for flat rate shipping, lol! But it was a fun and unusual rock shape to paint on, as soon as I saw it I knew it would be the perfect "canvas" for these goats! I hope you enjoy this whimsical piece as much as I enjoyed creating it! This is my entry in the Nibblefest Art Contest. There are other entries for you to choose from with each entry title containing the word NFAC. Please be sure to search for NFAC to see more great entries. We appreciate it!
