I love animals, particularly goats (smart, independent, loads of personality, and a sustainable source of milk and meat), so Brad Woodfin’s animal portraits struck a chord with me. Painted in stark chiaroscuro or in front of heavenly clouds, the elephants, owls, deer, sheep, and many many goats in Woodfin’s pieces have a mysterious, brooding, transcendent quality about them.
