This painting was inspired by Rambo... Yes Rambo. Back in my Primary school days I had a pet billy goat named Rambo. Neighbours of ours were making goats cheese & it must have rubbed off on my parents because pretty soon we had acquired some. I entered Rambo into our local grocer Pick & Pay’s Most Unusual Pet competition and won first prize! My very first Blue ribbon, well this one was red! On judging day everyone was gathered inside the front of the mall and Rambo must have loaded up on water before the trip to town or had a weak bladder because I had to keep moving from spot to spot leaving a long trace of puddles... good old days when that was still on my most embarrassing moments list.
