SOLD © Pam Van Londen 2008 Alabama Cow 8x8x1 in oil on clayboard
This week’s Different Strokes assignment is Bessy the Cow, from Alabama. She’s my first cow and probably not my last now that I’ve tried it.
I typically don’t paint animals (except my dog; who seems to be in every photo) because I don’t see them as thought provoking.
But any self-respecting artist would realize that it’s our job to make the subject matter thought provoking. I know now I can paint a cow, so the remaining challenge is to make it interesting with something to say.
