star student

This cow stared at me the whole ten minutes I was taking pictures of her and her friends. I have not seen or painted a lot of grey cows and this one was a beauty. I enjoy experimenting with combinations of colors to get grey. Definitely not just a mixture of black and white. I did not exaggerate the eyelashes on this cow.  I have done that before to add to the cow glamor.  This one had all the makings for a prize winning cow.  She is painted on a 12 x 12 x 2" canvas.

I have enjoyed having this weekend off from doing a show.  My youngest son graduated from college and we celebrated with several family members.  I go to Tupelo, Mississippi next weekend for the Gumtree Art Festival Saturday and Sunday.  Come see me if you are in the area.sold


  1. First, Congratulations on your sons graduation! Such a proud moment for a Mom! And of course, love this cow ......she's the cropped version...

  2. I have not seen many gray cows either, but you did a super painting of this one. The eyes make the painting.

  3. I don't think I've ever seen a gray cow but this one sure is pretty! Congratulations again to your son!
