Almost Free by J. Muir

From J. Muir
"It's called 'Almost Free' because this cow, while rescued from whatever sad fate awaited her and now living in a sanctuary, will always be dependent on human charity for her well-being.  She is domesticated - she can never be truly free.  But this painting is not just about her being a victim - we see her gazing back at us with soul and intent. 
Hope you like it."
