I took the photo reference for this in Balsam Mountain, North Carolina. My parents have a house not far from this area and I spotted this herd on my way up last week. I got some great photos and look forward to painting several of the pictures. This is painted on a 24 x 24 x 2" canvas.
I am headed to Tallahassee, Florida tomorrow afternoon to participate in the LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Show Saturday and Sunday. Would love to see you if you are in the area. I will be the one with all the cows in my booth.
