I like this. I too like the lonely cow and great title. I like your loose brush strokes. Very nicely done.

Good looking cow, they are harder to paint than they look like they would be. When I try one this loose, It usually looks like a dog, when I try a dog it usually looks like a pig...etc. Nice touch.

This is very nice. Part of this reminds me of Scott Addis. Are you familiar with his work?

Starting to think about your work a bit differently ... realizing there are more subtle ways of "pushing it" than the paths that work for me. This painting, and one you posted a couple weeks ago: the dark landscape with water, are starting to read like small poems. Very quiet, unassuming, and personal ... hence profound. Not sure where to go from here ... I'll keep looking though.
Thank you,
mark

cow is good
looking at the top and left edges as needing stronger connections

Vrashton.....thank you, glad you like it.
Tracy, thanks!
Robert, Yeah I know what you mean. In making a cow look like a cow....just add some other cows. :) Usually dogs aren't in herds.
Wolvenp......I took a quick look at Scott Addis, thanks! I'll go look some more. I like his muted tones.
Mark.....thanks!!! I was worried you had left us. I appreciate your comments.
Jerry.....When I go home tonight, I'll look at those two areas. On the screen here at work, it looks like there's a squarish shaded area on the right. Maybe I didn't catch that on the original.

that sqare-ish area
makes a good contribution
study the interactions and tensions of the totality before doing anything

The light in the sky, the slant, the rust browns...all so attractive..
loose brush strokes...good one!

Thanks Helen, Diane, Pero , Sarah, and Jim!!!
I keep wanting to go back into this one, but I made myself work on something else last night. I think the cow needs to sit for a bit. It may be finished. I would like to try some glazes which I don't do much of...but, I'm afraid I'll ruin it. My glazes always just look like colored goop.

I missed this one!

I don't think the cow looks lonely. He looks adventurous! I think he's running away from the herd.

Nice Bobbi... along with the great cow, I love the loose bushes in the back.
