The Moozles

The Moozles
(click to see the auction)

The spotted calf wants to know your name. Really she does, but don’t get too close! If you look carefully, you can see that those aren’t ordinary spots. Bossy has the moozles (not to be confused with their cousins, the measles) which (from what I’ve read), are super contagious and all kinds of itchy.

I painted this using Genesis heat set oil paints, about which I can't say enough good things. They very well might be my favorite paint now.

He's so cute! I'd love to try Genesis paints one day. Does the painting end up glossy or do you have to varnish it in the end?

Thanks Lilly! An unvarnished painting has a matte finish, but they sell 3 kinds of varnish - heat set matte, heat set satin (what I have) and air dry glossy (which I plan to get).

You should try them, can you get them where you are? (sorry I'm not sure if you're in Germany or Australia now!)
