5 x 7 Oil on board

Finding a herd of White Park cattle not too far from home was thrilling after many years of searching for these elusive creatures. Now that I have spent some time with them and taken a bunch of reference shots, it's time to work. There is an inherent responsibility to try and come close to a representation of their beauty but also their individual quirks. Therein lies the challenge and perhaps some tears of frustration!

Olive (At Last)

6 x 6 Oil on Board

So many people tell me they LOVE cows. I simply love spending time with them, especially if it involves kissing, lying in the grass with them, and scratching their chins!

Sorry about the funky reflective marks...varnished a bunch of paintings before realizing that they hadn't been photographed. Lesson learned.
