MISS 68 #5/50


8x12 oil on moleskine nfs

This is Miss 68 painted specifically for Sharon Hodges' moleskine over at Texas Moleskin Round-Up and #5 in the 50/50 series. Miss 68 belongs to friends of ours, I don't know what I like better, the amazing hospitality when we visit their gorgeous lakehouse in Corsicana or the bevy of bovines grazing outside our bedroom window! John has a wonderful variety of cattle, including some of my favorite longhorns. His cattle approach him easily making it a wide eyed adventure for myself and my camera toting husband. I hope you like cows as much as I do, Sharon.

Miss 68 is gorgeous! Look at those big eyes and long lashes. And stunning bone structure! I do always feel bad when I see brands or piercings on any animal. I suppose it must be very efficient though or it wouldn't be done. Beautifully painted, Angela!

Tout comme l'amour vache... Je suis toujours attendrie à la vue des vaches lorsque je fais des balades à vélo... J'aime particulièrement celle que vous venez de magnifiquement peindre. Vous avez parfaitement bien capter son attitude avec ses grands yeux qui en disent long...
Gros bisous;
