Shaped By Mountains
Mountain Goats are my husband’s favourite animal; so much so that photographic opportunities have found him scrambling over terrain that truly only a goat should be navigating.
For an artist like me the variety of images that he comes back with provide a bounty of creative opportunities. Starting with inspiration and a blank canvas I can take a number of different images and combine portions of them to create the feeling and movement that I want in a particular painting.
In this painting four different mountain goat images were used to create the nanny and kid.
