While the rain poured down this past weekend, I looked for inspiration in some of the photos I've snapped during the past year. I discovered a series of photos from a bicycle trip early in the spring. This painting is based on a photo taken of a field of cattle. I was impressed by the sunlight on the back of this cow as she stood in front of a line of trees. The contrast between her golden hide and the shadows of the trees behind her is what captured my attention. Remembering that delightful afternoon provided inspiration for creating this little 5x7 inch painting. Nothing like recalling sunshine on a rainy afternoon.
