Something about the turn of the head in this image made me think about exercise. Pilates to be exact. Maybe because every time we do Pilates together Ross complains vehemently about how much his neck hurts. Bad technique.....
I wish the painting gave a sense of the shear scale of this animal. They live down the street from us. There aren't many but they seem to fill the landscape. They also could care less that I am there. All the other cows I paint are very curious about what I'm doing. Not these guys! even the baby ones ignore me. Go figure.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
