Painting in Slovenia
While I was in Spodnji Brnik, Slovenia I visited a man who keeps a lot of goats. Goats from the Himalayas and from different parts of Europe. I also listened to the news about the migrants crossing over into Slovena. These two events inspired me to produce this painting about the migrants, the goats and the mountains.
