October Cowscape

October Cowscape
Oil on canvas, 40x60

It's been a while since I've made a cowscape! This is from a photo I've painted before, one that I took in Wyoming, and one that I have always loved.

It was my first painting trip, and I'd gone to Wisdom, Montana, my favorite place on earth before finding Wachapreague. On my way home through Wyoming, I got off the highway at every exit. There weren't that many. On one, this group of cows - steers, probably - crossed the road in front of me and looked rather threateningly at me. I took the photo, stayed in my car, and didn't mess with them.

If all goes according to plan, I will be at the Nassau County Museum of Art this weekend, at 1 Museum Drive in Rosslyn Harbor on Long Island. The show is from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. I'm in Booth T14, under the tent, so if there's weather, it shouldn't be an issue!

Who would have thought that cows could be so colorful! Love it!

Hey, Dan! I was thinking... I've never seen a purple cow, I never hope to see one... but if there is a purple cow, I never hope to be one...

Remember that from childhood? A long-ago echo in my slightly water-logged brain.

Thanks for the note. Glad you like the painting!
