This Hereford calf is alert and inquisitive, keeping watch on whoever views his portrait.
This piece was made by hand using a technique called needle felting, where wool is tapped into a felt background using a 3" long delicate needle. It takes many hours to create a portrait this way. The artwork materials are locally grown wool and alpaca fiber on a handmade felt background. The background is 100% alpaca fiber made by a friend and artisan using the wet-felting technique.
