a painting of a very popular
No names here... because the painting is gift.
I initially started the painting as one of my usual
looking into the eyes,
cropped in close, face paintings.

He is quite an imposing fellow,
but oh so sweet and prefers daisies,
just like his namesake,
Ferdinand... the Bull.
