New Beginnings

New Beginnings
A new born calf is exploring it's home. A barbed wire
fence protects it from getting lost on the vast farmland. Flowers
pop up and are soon tasted as the next found treasure.
Butterflies meander along in the warm air of springtime.
This is not just any calf, He has been befriended by the farmers daughter.
He will be afforded a special long life of delicacies.
A long life of being loved as the special pet of the Farmer's daughter.

The painting is wonderful, beautiful and what you say,
I am happy if this calf will be loved as much as require his eyes, sweetness of the eyes you have painted so well

ps:I will never forget the expression of fear in the eyes of another calf that I saw as I was a child who had fallen on the road where passing cars ...
My dad stands still and we held tight and moved to the roadside and called relief, was terrified

Such a sweet expression. Enjoy your day! I have to laugh because the captcha on this post is "graze". I love when the captcha matches the post.
