I have been wanting to paint a cow again so I made it happen. This one reminds me of the dairy cows we had when I was a kid. We had a very nice herd of cows not huge maybe25-30 milkers, our girls were use to being touched so they did not pull away from you when you reached out to them. Its been 40 years since we let the dairy business go but I still remember a few of the girls that had very unique personalities. Such beautiful creatures.
This was a piece that was commissioned for a Birthday gift. When I received the photos I would be working from I melted, she was so sweet, a big beautiful girl. I have always been a cat person but for a couple of years now I'm also a dog person.
