Meet "Bubba", original oil 12 x 16. While participating in the "Plein Air in the Mountains" event in Ellijay, GA, I was fortunate to paint at Build an Ark Animal Rescue Foundation. It serves as a foster home to baby sheep, goats, rams, alpaca, donkeys, mules,ponies, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, baby chicks as well as dogs and cats (and that’s just scratching the surface) allows them to roam and have a peaceful existence in the beautiful North Georgia Mountain at Coosawattee River Resort in Ellijay near Carter's Lake.Donations to the Rescue Center would be greatly appreciated as they are desperate need of help. https://www.youcaring.com/buildanark-756135
Bubba and I clicked right away and he stayed near me all day, playing with my brushes, hee-hawing and just begging for attention and carrots. He would photo bomb any image I tried to take of the horses, check on the painting periodically and finally gave his approval when finished. Couldn't have asked for a better painting partner. This painting was sold at the auction. Updated information: After over 30 years of being the donkey in the Passion Play, Bubba was put to sleep. I'm sure there is a special place for Bubba in Heaven. Goodnight Bubba! Rest peacefully. Prints are available.
