chip off the old block

I painted this picture a few months ago and never posted it.  I finally figured out a better way(for me anyway) to photograph large pieces.  I take my photos outside with the back of the painting is facing the sun.  If it is a small painting, you can put it in a box lid or something so that light does not get through. Learned this from Qiang Huang. To photograph the large piece, I tacked some dark felt to the back of the painting to take the place of the box.  Handling these big pieces is  hard. This is another 4 x 4 x 2".sold

  I put "puppy love" on my mantle so that I could live with it a while.  It helps me to see problems.  I decided to upgrade his horns and make it so that the end of his tail did not look like a lobster claw. Check him out on my previous post to see the changes.


  1. I love when you add the wild field flowers to your cow pieces, Carol. They lend to a feeling of bucolic serenity...a lazy not too hot summer day in which the worries are kept at bay by sheer lovely peacefulness and prettiness.

  2. I have to say that the yellow wildflowers pulls everything else together, Carol..
    Wonderful work!!
