Moo Moo 10" x 30"


I finished the cows a couple of months ago but haven't had a chance to photograph them until recently. Cows are surprisingly challenging to render. This pair vacillated between looking like sheep and dogs. When I was in Florida in December I had a chance to pet some cows in a pasture adjacent to a medical building. They were very friendly. When I was a kid in Wisconsin, I rode my bike in the country to and from school and would moo at the cows, and they would pick their heads up and look at me every time...it was very satisfying.
