Crock and Red Flowers - Oil Painting, Antelope

Crock and Red Flowers is an oil painting measuring 14 inches tall by 11 inches wide and is available for $395.00.

Arrival of the Black Buck Antelope!

Black buck antelope are native to India. As the name suggests, the males darken with age and the females remain this lighter brown. We're hoping that these 3 are happy here and enjoy our grasses and browse.

They're already enjoying the field in front of the house, happily eating with our deer. I was looking out at them all together, the deer and the antelope, and it happened. ♪ where the deer and the antelope play♫♪♫, and yes - "Home, Home On the Range" stayed in my head all day!

They were released in the field in front of Lake Jean. They bounded off, bouncing on, then slowed down when they reached the thick brush on the other side of the water.

I'm amazed at how high they bounce, must be springs on those feet!

This is the only photo I have from the game camera. They're eating in the field in front of the house, but my photos from the patio are through the patio fence - not too exciting.

I love your new painting, Jean. Those antelope must keep you well entertained. I think I could sit and watch them all day long. Unfortunately, we don't have antelope in Hawaii.

"Woody-Cat" instead of Puddy-cat.

Ok Ok pretty lame........

I so appreciate blog comments, and want to appologize for being so late at responding. I was out of town all last week at a workshop, with little internet access.

Diane ~ Thank you so much! The antelope have already given us so much joy! We wait to see if they'll come to the feeder. I'm glad you like my painting! New Kitty is making itself useful in the studio.


Vernita, Thank you, what a very lovely compliment!


Thank you Michelle! I'm behind visiting your blog! Still trying to get everything caught up from being out of town.


Manon, so glad you enjoyed it!


Claudia - I'm so glad you visited my blog! Thank you for your compliment on my painting!


Suzanne, I thank you, and really - it gives me so much pleasure to share. I think beauty is meant to be shared, don't you?


Hey Enzie! Thank you!


Flowers - I'm happy you found my blog. We have such an abundance of wildlife here, plus the beautiful trees and flowers - I'm never without photos to post!


Genie - we think one of the Does is pregnant, hope so! They actually have 2 year, so we should be able to have a small 'herd' fairly soon! I love seeing them.


Mary, thank you so much! We love the wildlife here, never tire of it. Every morning, we have our coffee watching the feeder.


Debra - it's a wonderful place, thank you so much!


Lisa - how are you doing, lady?? The wildlife is quite a lot of entertainment - which says something about our social life!!! hmm, Woody might do....


Becky - I'm so glad you visited! Thank you so much for the nice compliment. There are more and more exotic animals in this area of Texas. Of course the deer are native, and we do see so much more of them. Yes, it's a beautiful area to paint!

Wireworks - thank you so much!


Anonymous - I'm glad you enjoyed my blog!
