Cattle In Long Grass

Cattle In Long Grass    8" x 10"      oil     
Ok, I know what your thinking.....'is this woman ever going to figure out what she wants to paint!?? ' Well, what drew me in here, was actually the way the cows blended into the trees and background shadows and created the horizontal darks in the top third of the painting. So, for your weekend, I leave you with a grazing cow in long grass, in  hopes that you are as contented as she.

  2. I think it is good to paint a lot of different subjects, to be able to, why limit oneself? And I think you can paint anything! This is another wonderful piece of art.

  3. You can paint different subjects because it is the design and color theory that you do so well and not that you painted every feather on a bird correctly. Well done.
