ROUGE RED


oil on moleskine paper nfs

This is for Kay Wyne's moleskine at Texas Moleskin Round-Up. If you know me, then you know I love cows, so when I learned Kay's theme was Holy Cow, it was a matter of finding which one I wanted to paint for her. Rouge Red or Red Red if you prefer, is from SW Louisiana, thanks to my brother, who constantly provides me with photos filled with gorgeous landscapes dotted with cows.

My first thought was that this piece should be titled "Bliss." This is really beautiful, Angela. The grasses are fresh and new and light, a tasty meal for this beautiful cow.

Angela,
Your cow painting is beautiful. Now everytime I see cows in a field I think about how much you like to paint them.

I love how beautifully and confidently you painted this cow's anatomy. Wonderful colors in the body against the cool grass . . .
