Grandpa Tex

"Grandpa Tex"  (pastel, 7x5 inches)  click here to bid

First I named him "Tex" because of the great state of Texas on his forehead (that was helped along with just a little bit of artistic license.)

Then I though "...But that's such a great name I might want to use it on a larger painting someday." So I added the nickname "Grandpa" as a prefix because of his white 'beard'. Never mind the fact that this calf is not old enough to have any offspring, let alone grandcalves. It's quirky and I like it.
