Landscape with Cow

Well.. i've gotten a 'cow thang' going on in the studio this week. i think it's because i'm about to install some of these cow paintings in a coffee shop on friday. i've been reworking several older paintings in preparation for this.

the tall vertical landscape -- has become much richer and fuller with yesterday's work. i have some subtle transitions to place in today... to the treeline and horizon line- but i wanted you to see it in it's unresolved state. later today.. i'll post the final version.

Carol, there is always something appealing about cows. Don't know why but I've enjoyed painting them and seeing paintings of them whenever they show up in a gallery or show. I think this one is extremely handsome :) Hope the show goes splendidly (you sure put yourself under pressure painting this week for a hanging on Friday!
