Texas Lady & A Love Story


I got in the mood to paint a cow after reading a wonderful old fashion love story by Ree Drummond-The Pioneer Woman.  Ree lives on a cattle ranch on the open plains of Oklahoma miles away from the city life she had become accustomed to while growing up and then later when she went off to college on the west coast.  The book is a very uplifting bit of fun and takes  you back to the old movie days when romance was what we all expected and treasured. Click this link to read a review for Black Heels To Tractor Wheels.  Taking a step back to enjoy a bit of romance made for, "A Painting Day".

Love the soft blue in the background, it works nicely to show off the rich browns in this cow. I also like the way you have the horns running off the canvas.

She has the typical, very soft and sweet face of a peaceful, contented animal
