balsam mountain beauty

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.sold


  1. My favorite of your cows Carol! Love closeups.... wonderful work....

  2. Bonjour ma chère Carol !
    J'ai toujours un amour vache pour elles !
    Les nuances de couleurs que vous avez employées sont extraordinaires.
    Comme j'aimerais pouvoir venir et vous rencontrer vous et votre art !

    Gros bisous et joyeuses fêtes.

  3. Super! The neutral background colors give it a peaceful feel. I love seeing it in the easel too.

  4. Beautiful! I do not know my cow breeds, but for some reason, I think you could make a killing if you had a booth at a Thresherman's show in farming areas. Wouldn't dairy farmers love these? I know I do!

  5. Just absolutely great! You put so much soul into your paintings, Carol, and I love the sweet humor of the animals' expressions!
