Grazing--Original American Cow Portrait

This little 6x8 inch painting on a canvas panel has been one of my favorite cow paintings. She is so peaceful as she grazes on a hillside meadow. But I make it a policy not to hold on to my paintings for long. Passing them on to a new owner keeps me motivated and keeps me painting. Thus, I added her to the Small Impressions Gallery with some of my other animal paintings and she sold almost immediately.

I love how the light is hitting the cow. It has a very ethereal feeling to it.

Nice job.

Nancy: The contrast and the grayish background makes the painting work really well. Great piece!
