Bovine Artists

"Just Whistling Dixie"


The American Society of Bovine Artists  Second Ever Art Show & Sale is at the Cactus Jacks Gallery in Gruene, Texas through November and possibly part of December.  My two painting entries "Just Whistling Dixie" and "Heiffie" should feel right at home in Texas cow country.  I first heard of the Bovine Society from a patron living in Texas.  They say the west was not settled by horseboys but by cowboys and we need to celebrate the cow.  I joined immediately to be with like minded cow painters.
Finding the American Society of Bovine Artists made for, "A Painting Day".

Wonderful colors and brush work in both of these paintings, Ruth. They're both great entries for the Bovine show.

What great paintings for the bovine show! Love your titles! You do such a wonderful job of painting the brown with many colors and the white too! Love them!

The brushwork in both pieces makes want to go "pet" a cow. Love the backgrounds also.
