The Seduction of the Goat

The Seduction LowRes

The Seduction of the Goat (Copyright © 2009 Paula Ogier)

Some things I can’t explain. Like what possessed me to paint this image, The Seduction of the Goat, one night about 4 years ago. It just happened.

Yesterday was the Chinese New Year. Here we are in the year of the goat, according to the Chinese zodiac, so I’ve pulled this curious piece out to muse over.

Here’s an informative little article by NPR about why goat, sheep or ram may be the English translation for this year’s animal.

The Examiner.com says the overall theme for the year of the wood goat/ram/sheep is creativity and diligence resulting in prosperity.

May you have a diligently creative day.

If you’d like to see more art, it’s right this way.

Hi there. I’m artist Paula Ogier. In this blog I write about about new works, projects in process, life as a working artist, life in Boston, and inspirations and challenges in growing an art business. I live and work in Boston's South End neighborhood. I'm fond of big cities, architecture, great imaginative spaces, talking to cats, food & drink, gardening, wandering around on foot, binge-watching well written shows, and of course, making art.
