I had the great good fortune in February to meet a young man who wants to give his parents a cowscape, as a present from him and his fiancee before their wedding.

He sent me a photo of some cows in the pasture in front of his parents' home, and I made the painting and am about to send it off to him. I liked the grouping of cows so much that I asked if I could incorporate them into a different painting, and he said OK.

So... Same cows, totally different paintings. Fun!

Which do you prefer?

 Wow! Double rainbow Saturday in Richmond!

Dog of the Day

Two beautiful Samoyeds at the show in Richmond this past weekend. 

They made me think of my Sam, who passed a couple years ago, 
but who I remember every day. He was one of the sweetest dogs ever.

I prefer the bright yellow background cows. Not sure why. I love how you often put the tiniest house in the background!

Thanks, Deb. I love the bright yellow backgrounds, and have to keep myself from painting everything bright yellow! I don't think he wanted bright yellow...

Thanks for noticing the tiny houses. Basically, I want to live in those houses and look out over my giant yellow fields to see my beautiful cows.
