The Horned Cow

oil on board  5x7 inches

I've had a couple of wipers this week, first a sheep, then a dog- but finally am happy with this portrait of a cow. It was a challenge to see if I could make a decent painting from my image, as the face is entirely in shadow. 

One of the things I love about cows is that gentle and curious gaze they give you.  


  1. Wonderful Taryn! Love how soft and sleepy this cow looks. Great cropping job on the horns too.

  2. A beautiful painting. Love cows.
