"Pasturized"

8 x 8"
oil on masonite
sold

All this talk Neil Hollingsworth's been doing about painting cows persuaded me to put the felons aside for a bit and join in. There's a good reason artists love this subject - it's a patchwork of every color on the palette.

My aim was to keep loose, like with the faces, and keep the brush moving fast and furious. No sketching, no pausing, just motor on. Very fun and liberating.

and..... my good friend, Karen Hollingsworth, has small works on auction that are delightful. And she has a new blog.

Karin,

Your paintings are just way way too cool.

What is it about a cow painting, that is so appealing? I do love this painting. I think for me it evokes emotions of nostalgia (grandparents home in the country) and graphically, you just can't go wrong with black and white. Beautiful!

I like the sculptural brushstrokes here, very nice painting. I also enjoy your experiments with different colored grounds and the effect it has on the final painting.

I'm a huge fan of cow paintings - not sure why, I just love them. This one is wonderful.

What Erik stated - couldn't have 'said' it better.
