Another Hill to Climb - Longhorn cow oil painting by Debbie Grayson Lincoln

6 X 8 Oil on Gessoed Masonite $115
Includes shipping and insurance in US
We have finally had a bit of rain here in the Heart of Texas and no really cold weather yet. Aunt Abbey the milk cow is enjoying the little patch of oat grass, as is her adopted son the Other Brother Darryl. THIS cow is still looking for grass, though...maybe over that hill yonder?
Spring planning has begun - ordering chicks and seeds are at the top of my list right now. I curl up on the sofa in the evening and pour over the catalogs and make my lists.
All the hens have been very healthy through the winter (and safe from the coyotes and bobcats), but I still like to "replenish" every spring with both mail order chicks and chicks that I will allow one hen to hatch. I just LOVE the sound of a hen clucking to her chicks when she has found a special morsel for them - they are the personification of the perfect mother, putting their babies first in every way.
Luke 13:34
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.

Lovely piece! You have captured the light on this longhorn quite beautifully.

I love the beautiful play of color in this one. The blues warmed by the orange glow.

Great painting! I've thought it would be fun to have some chickens, but I'm afraid they would be a bit too much work in the long run.
