#115/365 Paintings

I love how cows look at you with those large, soft brown/black eyes. Mildly curious, regarding you. Perhaps if you offered them an alternative meadow or a monkey to play with, it might, just might shake up the molecules a bit– get them moving at a slightly faster rate. I think cow’s are simply saying, “I’m good here, but give me all you got, I’m listening. I could be interested.”

Project notes: This cow is an acrylic + watercolor painting. It came from paint leftovers. A throw down of unused paint, because I was doing the dishes and wanted to wash the paint plate. Doing this reminded me of what I was doing before I switched from 5 ft and up canvas’s to 6″ x 9″ watercolor paper for 365. The technique I had used for years, finger painting is simply another way of saying, “I can’t be bothered to mix paint or think about it to much. Something will just have to happen by slopping paint on the canvas.” In this case, slopping on small hot press paper. Surprised to see that this is possible working small. Leftovers is fun!
