Cow-a-palooza

Hi all. Just darting in with a few projects. The first was supposed to be a wedding present for my neighbor but it looked so perfect on my shiplap wall that I kept it and she got dishes instead. Lol.
The second is a folk art painting I did on an old cabinet door we found in the barn here.
The others are a ukulele kit I got for Christmas and I decided to paint cows on it. O call it the MOO-ukulele. Hahaha.
Our house is under contract and Lord Willing it all goes through and we will move back to NH.

Hi Deb, such fun to see cows. I just love cows and you gave them life and personality. Many thanks for sharing with us.

Hope your move goes smoothly and you arrive safely in the northeast.

Re: Cow-a-palooza

As usual - AWESOME WORK! Hope your move goes well!
Miss your paintings - wish you would not stay away for such long periods!

I'm trying to talk my wife into moving back to AZ or NM - not even getting to 1st base - keep striking out! FL just ain't my cup of tea :>((

Hey Richard! Maybe you just buy a small cabin as a second home- rent it out when you are not there! I hear ya though- Florida would not be my cup of tea either!

Re: Cow-a-palooza

Deb, it's so great to see your work again. I just love your expert touch with your paintings. The first portrait is absolutely stunning and makes me smile. I love that you kept it and gave your neighbor dishes instead. I love the folk art style of the second one. The Moo-ukulele is brilliant! I just adore this! Fantastic paintings!

So...we've got to know. Do you play the Moo-ukulele?

You paint a Holstein very well.
I hope your friend is enjoying the dishes.

Re: Cow-a-palooza

wow. Love the "presence" of your cows. I can almost feel their breath but also great designing.

These are just so awesome, brimming with life and character. I wouldn't have given away that first one either!

Re: Cow-a-palooza

Lucky me...haven't been on WC for years and first time get lucky seeing a Deb painting to dazzle the eye. All great but really like the quirky folk art work on the door. Why not move back to the SW and take up some of the excess sunshine we have? Still have a great painting of yours hanging in my house in a place of honor.

Re: Cow-a-palooza

Great cows! Cows are difficult to render realistically, just as horses are and although I grew up on a cattle ranch, haven't had any for years, thus no artist's models!

Re: Cow-a-palooza

While riding my recumbent trike, I once stopped to look at a field of cows. They had evidently never seen a recumbent trike; so, they ran over to the fence to stare at me with those intelligent eyes. Your cows are "Deja Vu" and wonderful. Gary
