Its been very hot and dry for a couple of weeks, so this gives me a great excuse to finish a painting. An indoor/outdoor version of a canvas painting I did a while ago. The size makes it a very in your face painting, 4ftx4ft.
I have had this photo for a couple of years in my photo bank of possible painting subjects. I thought it was so sweet. Summer is a busy time so finding the time to paint is tricky. I started this one last week but the mood to complete it was not there until yesterday. I have said it before and I will say it again Cows are such sweet beautiful creatures.

I have had a bit of a cold for the last week, not the best timing. Its the beginning of crazy busy multi tasking garden and painting season, not that any time is a good time to have a cold. The up side is while I was too tired to get much work done I still had the energy to paint.....yay for painting. Its always there to fill in the gaps and still leave me feeling like I actually accomplished something. TAKE THAT..... weeds in the garden....painting and I are best friends, you will have to wait till tomorrow for my time.
I painted this scene befor on a smaller canvas and I thought it diserved to be on a larger canvas.
