Hey Now, Brown (and White) Cow


hey now brown and white cow


Though they are all just a little bit different in personality, I have painted several of these brown (and white) cows in all different sizes, from scrabble piece size to this one that is 40” tall.  This one I painted just for me to keep and it was beggin’ for a frame.  I bought this fancy old one and painted it white and, even though some of the wooden appliques had broken off, I think it worked out pretty well.  She now has a place to hang in a corner between my family room and kitchen.  I was hoping it would help make me a vegetarian.

I want to link (just this white part) with White Wednesday over at Kathleen’s Faded Charm. Thanks for always being a super gracious hostess, Kathleen!

Looking at those soulful eyes, I could almost give up cheese burgers...almost!

Looks great.

Yeh-I'm almost a vegetarian too-can't look at raw meat-I know I'm crazy-see those creatures-the painting has great eyes!

Fabulously sweet - LOVE the creamer hanging over her head! Great job.

She's moo-valous! Really cute, and I love her big ole eyes. When I was young we would always have a couple of cows that we would get as calves. I never wanted to eat beef because they were more like my pets!
