Mother and Child

Click to Bid
I spotted this cow and calf during a painting event in the midwest.  They were a sweet pair and the calf was definitely being sheltered by its mother.  It was a moment I wanted to capture.  I painted this on a wood grained panel that had been treated with a clear gesso.  I loved the look of the wood grain and decided to leave a portion of the painting unfinished to save some of the beautiful background.
I liked this look and may try to do this again in other paintings.

Her Favorite Earring

Click to Bid
Here is another cow, this one a dairy cow, wearing her favorite earring.  I painted this on a board that was gessoed clear, allowing the wood grain to show through around the edges.  The painting is cradled and then framed with a stunning black floater frame, adding dimensionality to the work.
