These two look like brothers don't you think? Same hairstyles too! There were a lot of other cows in the paddock but this pair stood there looking and let me get up close to take a photo. I love their white faces with the black patches around the eyes!!

Daffodil Duet

8"x8" Oil on board

It's not spring in this part of the world yet, but my friend gave me these two daffodils from her garden. It was a nice reminder that the warmer weather is not far away! I find yellow one of the hardest colors to had to have a go!! I think I liked the initial block in best.... always hard not to over work...but here it is!

'I Am Ewe'

6x6 Oil on board
$85 + s/h

The words of Helen  Reddy's song 'I Am Woman' came to mind while I was painting this ewe. I'm not sure if it is the look in her eye or what but I think she looks pretty invincible...whatever it is I like the attitude!! Must say I always enjoy painting sheep!

Tamarillo Twosome

6"x6" Oil on board
A cosy looking couple!!
I bought these Tamarillos to paint first then eat. They were sitting around a few days, so I had to get moving and paint while they still looked good! They tasted good too!!!

Curious Cows

8"x10" Oil on board

I love the way cows stop and stare when I stop to take photos! They are very good models...very calm, gentle animals. It is winter here and  this day was quite dull!! I liked the way the black cows seemed to stand out in this light...but I must admit it was a challenge painting the black in this kind of light. This didn't photograph that well and looks better in real life...I tried about 6 times and gave up!!!
