"Cowabunga" - SOLD

This is my favorite of the cows, and the last for now. It was one of those that just seemed to appear on the canvas as if by magic.
Meanwhile, my husband is almost done with my new workbench, meaning I can finally move my office and shipping area out of ... the bathroom. I've posted some photos of each on my studio blog. : )

Hey Carol,

I really love these cows....I've been painting them for years in my studio paintings, and loving the forms. People always commented "why cows?"

I feel validated....your cows are lovely.

Happy painting,

Gaye Adams

The main cow's eyes are fantastic! I love her look, her eye brows...wow! I always enjoy your colors and compositions, but this is THE cow painting !

Cows are curious. Most people don't stop to see the wonderful colors in their hide. White faced cattle are particularly striking with the rich burnt sienna color on their body. You have captured the cows personality.

I just love the lighting on these cow paintings.

Lisa Daria said...

Love the brushwork on this one - love the different colors and shading, they glow.

On the subject of the shipping department in your bathroom, your creativity knows no bounds!

This cow is gosh darn gorgeous and looks as though you and he/she(?) have just had a thought-provoking conversation.
So many pretty colors all on one lucky big cow.
