#20 Dolly, The Provider - portrait of a Jersey Cow

6X6 Oil on mounted canvas $100
This painting is SOLD
Another cow portrait and an accompanying time lapse video (SEE IT HERE). This lovely animal is no longer alive - but her memory lingers with Janene, her owner and caregiver. Janene is also one of the moderators of the "Keeping a Family Cow" discussion board. If you want to learn about all things cow, this is the place (as well as all things chicken, bunnies, goats, pigs and sheep with an occasional horse!)
This challenge has been quite beneficial for me to practice small, planned paintings. It is teaching me to follow certain steps of production that I don't always follow...especially when I set up the camera to film a time lapse. I do not know how to edit the videos, so what I shoot (in one take) is what I get. And aside from knocking the tripod a couple times, they have all gone pretty smoothly.
I know ya'll must be getting bored with all the cow portraits, but I promise there are other animals coming up!
Psalm 23:6
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
