Zeus is strutting his stuff!
Today's painting features Zeus, another handsome fellow from the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC)- Zeus. Here is his bio (taken from the DSC's website):
"Zeus a grey-dun miniature donkey who was born in Southern Ontario. In the summer of 2016 he was relinquished to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada (DSC) because of frequent biting and other behaviours he had learned as a foal who was weaned too quickly.
A donkey mother plays a vital part in teaching her offspring how to behave. Zeus was never taught how to properly interact with other donkeys as well as humans, which led to some undesirable behaviour that made it difficult for his owner to handle him.
It is our hope that with consistent and constant training by our barn staff Zeus will learn how to get along with donkeys and people alike and will be able to lead a happy life in harmony with everyone at the DSC.
Zeus is very affectionate – on his terms – and is extremely curious."
I believe art is meant to be shared. I am a Canadian landscape painter that works primary in oils & acrylics. I create works both en plein air & in the studio.
