SOLD Commission
send me an email for YOURS!

Years ago I swore I would not paint bluebonnets like every other Texas oil painter. However, they were so gorgeous last year, I couldn't resist - and of course I had to put a cow or horse in the painting. As a result I have sold nearly every one I have painted with requests for more standing in line.
This is my favorite of Ron's cows that roam our pasture outside my studio window. This cow has had 3 pretty babies and never needs help raising them. Her horns are formidable, too, and she knows how to use them.
The lady who commissioned this painting lives in Florida and WISHES she could live in Texas. Occasionally I find myself longing for the coast - my favorite vacations as a child were on the beach - but then I look out my window and wonder why I would ever want to leave. Doesn't make sense, does it?
