Painting A Cow

September 29, 2017

The hardest part of painting a cow, is getting her to stand still.  The paint, of course, can be purchased at Amazon.  No, I am not painting Agnes.  She is perfect just the way she is, just a perfect black cow.  (Well, she’d be a tiny bit more perfect if she were ‘in the family way’, but we are working on that.)

There is a trend lately, to join together sip wine and paint on canvas.  We might live in the country, but these opportunities come to us as well.  The art we paint, just has a bit more meaning to us, than say a rendering of Monet’s ‘Water Lillies’.  We joined together to paint cows.  (Oh, be still my heart).

A night out with My Loving Spouse to do something fun and different.  It was just what we needed.  We showed up to the Blue Rock Saloon.  My Loving Spouse with sharpened pencil in hand.I had a different set of tools.

I had never painted on canvas, so I was both a tad nervous and quite excited.  We were given some simple instructions.One of us had been practicing their reality cow rendering.

Then it was time to add some paint.  I am sure you’ve noticed that there is a disproportionate number of black AND WHITE cows in all cow art.  Black cows do not receive the recognition that they deserve.  You can be sure, that my art would reflect my cow.
My Loving Spouse on the other hand was just having fun.

What fun it was too!  If you get the chance to join together with friends or people you don’t even know, who become your friend when they pass you the black paint, to enjoy a night out painting, I highly recommend it.  If you get to paint cows, well, as they say in Ellensburg, that is ‘even better‘!

    Love the cow pictures, you are both so talented. Hey where are the pumpkin pictures for the year. I like to drool with envy over you huge crop. I am lucky if I get a few small squash, the pumpkin never grow. Love how yours take over. Hope all is well. Glenda

    • Thank you so very much! Pumpkin pictures will be done!

  • I’m suprised Pat wasn’t painting boats. Can’t believe he painted a brown cow!

    Agnes is so picturesque! Love how you have her peering into the canvas space. And I want to know where I can get some of her eyelashes. YOur style reminds me of another artist I know who paints animals too. Suzanne Edmunson. Check out her website. http://www.suzanneedmonson.com/large-multi-view/Animal%20Paintings%20Part%202/2477080-17-204016/Animal%20Paintings%20Part%202.html

    • Wow! Thank you! I love seeing Suzanne’s art!

        ANother artist you may enjoy is Shanney Watters http://shaneywatters.com/
        I particularly love her long winded titles.

        • I LOVE those! Her titles make me laugh and want to fill my cart and buy them all. Thanks, Mims!!!
