Nibbling by the Day, a charming scene of a calf grazing on the outskirts of a forest, demonstrates Enneking's singular style. With quick impressionistic brushstrokes, he captures the vibrant autumn foliage and the textured hair of the calf grazing in the foreground, while also conveying the tranquility of the scene.
