Yes, everyone around me is painting cows, spurred on by our resident expert in painting cows. I resisted for months, helped by weeks of rain which put a damper on canvases, paints and my inspiration. So here is my entry in the big sweepstakes..."Knee Deep" I caught these guys by the side of the road in early morning, backlit to give them more appeal. Of course they interrupted their breakfast and were about to come over and see if I had more of it. Not being a farmer, I jumped back into the car and sped off to the next farm for photo-taking. Altogether a great day!
Welcome to my studio. I'm a second career artist and love to paint plein aire as well as in the studio. Out of the way places are favorite spots especially when I can go with fellow artists. Kentucky has more streams than any state except Alaska and they afford great views. Old barns and farmland are also fun spots to find subjects. I hope you enjoy the new paintings shown and the stories behind them. And please feel free to comment.
