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.
