Painting Goats?!

Eight handmade wooden signs at roadside, advertising Painting Goats as well as various farm and craft goods.
But what does that mean?!

Driving along the Long Beach Peninsula in our beautiful state of Washington, I saw the above roadside sign, and had to pull an immediate U-turn. “Painting Goats” raises more questions than it answers.

Yes, there really are goats who paint with real art materials on this art studio/working farm. We took a tour with one of the owners. While I would have loved to have seen a painting goat in action, we did see various artworks, and learned about individual painting habits…apparently, some goats are more invested in painting than others. They generally like to imitate their humans, which is how this talent came to light in the first place, but some persist in painting, while some are very quickly ready to move on. We met some of the goats too.

We bought a small painting for a Christmas tree ornament.

Another first-time experience: we dug up our own potatoes, onions and carrots!

  1. I absolutely love the vibrant and expressive portrayal of goats in these paintings! The artist, Maura McGurk, has captured the essence of these charming creatures with such skill and creativity. Each piece tells a unique story and evokes a sense of joy. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work and bringing these delightful goats to life on canvas!
