Doc!


"It's always something! Now I broke my horn!
Can you fix it and make it better?!"
I painted this today from a picture I've had.
Originally painted in the mid 1800's by an
artist from Germany(?) I've never been able to
find any info about it, Whimsical and fun!
oil on gesso'd board 6"x10" approx.

The painting I was hoping to post didn't get done,(yet) so I did this to keep rolling along.
