My New Hobby

As you all know I am retired from being a milking goat.
I am not retired from being a SpokesGoat!
I will be a SpokesGoat forever. I love that job.

But I do find myself with some free time now so I have decided to take up a hobby.
Every goat needs a hobby, don't you think?
I have decided to take up painting!

I can be Pricilla van Gogh!
Here is a self portrait in the impressionist style. What do you think?

I like how I have kept the me part photographic. Do you?

Here is the same scene done in the modern style.

Then I decided to use Abby as a subject.
Here she is as a oil painting.

I like the bright green background.

Then I decided to get moodier.
I did a an illustration style of Mallory in the barn.

After that I decided to have some fun. I took a photo of young Harry the cowgoat. You remember him, right?
I added some leaves to his face.

Isn't it funny? I sure think so.
I have to say thank you to the publicist for giving me some new software to play with. It's called Corel Paint It! 

There are so many more things I can do and lots more effects. Trust me, I will be playing a lot now that I have all this free time.

The publicist will be playing with it on her blog too.
And even better yet she will be giving it away on her blog tomorrow.

That way one of you can have fun like me! 

Tomorrow:  Wordless Wednesday

Disclosure:  The publicist received free Corel Paint It! so I could play with it. Well maybe not just for me but still she did get it for free so I wanted to make sure I told you all that. It didn't change the fact that I had a lot of fun painting my pictures in my new free time from being a retired goat.


  1. Oh my! You sure are talented! I particularly like portrait of Mallory! It should be framed and hang in a gallery!

    Or at least hanging in my stall!

  2. Those are wonderful! I would hang them on my walls!

  3. I am so glad you are enjoying your time as a retired goat. Your photos look awesome!

  4. Pretty fun stuff. I am aching to get a new version of Photoshop.

    All your goaties look so lovely.

  5. beyond cool. I have always admired this program but never purchased it.

  6. Your talents are endless Pricilla!

  7. Very good job!! I was wondering as I went thru your paintings just how you did that, glad you gave that info :O)...

    I think this is a good hobby for you!

  8. I LOVE them. I like the moodier one and the impressionistic one. I will def be staying tuned for details about a giveaway!

  9. omg....this is too cool. i must find out more about this! i am in a rush here today but will be back to check it out!

  10. I love these paintings P! They are wonderful. Makes me think I should try my hand at some watercolors or something. Very pretty work.

  11. Those are amazing pictures! Pricilla please don't cut off your ear. That is a really cool piece of software, I'm still trying to figure out Paint however.

  12. Love Mallory's mood painting...very soothing and she's beautiful. I hope you've thoroughly thanked the publicist for letting you use the software...come visit when you can...

  13. The pictures are terrific. We have a goat, our only goat, on our blog today. She is trying to butt down a fence. Good luck.
    So that was Coral Paint It. We might have to look into that.
    Have a great day.

  14. You did a wonderful job with those photos! You could open your own Etsy shop and sell your beautiful art!

  15. How artistic. Soon you'll need your own SpokesGoat.

  16. The other day I was playing with PSE and my son's friend stopped over. He had some experience with it and he ended up teaching me lots of cool tricks. But in the interim, we were doing silly stuff like adding noses in silly places and putting mustaches everywhere. I was cracking myself up! It's good to know that I am not alone in having fun with photos.


Maaaaaa away....
