It was inevitable that I would eventually work my way around to painting a pig. I think I will have to do another one that focuses more closely on the face. There is so much expression that I would like to capture, and I’m not sure that I’ve got it here. Stay tuned.
I actually had to look up whether a group of sheep is called a herd or a flock. Flock it is!
I decided to do a quick landscape – no cows, chickens or other animals in this one. I wanted the focus to be on the dramatic sky and huge puffy clouds.
“Cow in a Field” is a really boring name for a painting, so I’ll call him Bart.
I think these cows are cropping up in my paintings because of a recent trip to Alberta – a reminder of a lazy drive in the country on a sunny day.
This has not been the most productive summer, artwise. I did manage to complete these two little paintings for my aunt (to give to my other aunt). Thanks to Sandy for motivating me to get something done!
I was in Alberta this summer and had some time to appreciate the landscape. From the top of the one of the gentle rolling hills, you can see forever – so different from the view here in Vancouver. In the background you can see the Rochfort Bridge Trestle, one of the longest wooden train trestles in North America.
