Cow Powow


Click Here to Bid (5x7in.)

The last few days I've been working on a series of cow paintings that have brought me much joy! I'll talk about the joy part later, but for now I have more immediate news...

I am heading to California tomorrow to join 6 other artists on a hiking/camping/plein air trip into the Sierras! I'm really excited about this trip, because not only will it be ALL about art, but I will be hanging with some pretty awesome artists! We will have our camping gear hauled in on pack animals (mules I think?) and our food cooked for us - all we have to carry is our painting gear. I'll be bringing my camera too and will give a full report when I return. That is, if I'm not eaten by bears or mountain lions, or fall off a cliff (if I say it, it won't happen).

Meanwhile, I'll pre-post the cows so you can enjoy them while I'm away. As usual, I won't be able to ship anything until I return (as late as the 25th). Toodles!

Have a great trip, Carol. I love your plein air work. Can't wait to see the results of this trip! Sounds wonderful!

Have a great time.
If the Bears come by just give them a brush, they just may want something to do.
Happy Brushing,

OMG, your title totally captures the gesture of the calves! Love this painting. Painting in the sierras will be awesome and I can't wait to see what you produce from that trip. Oddly enough, I'm in your neck of the woods "trial backpacking" ( everybody's doing it). It means my friend and I are seeing if we could handle 5 days. Most people would just call that hiking. I digress. Can't wait to see what you decide to do with your art next year!
