Why paint a cow!? But who can help it! My source of cows are in Poughkeepsie, NY at Sprout Creek Farm.
I madly dashed this one out. The first photo I posted of it was a snapshot which has since been updated and is more true in color to the original artwork. I use these final photos to make prints & merchandise available as explained on my website. Large format prints, smaller prints, and merchandise.
I wanted to paint a vertical sea turtle painting and tried this pose. What do you think? When I am at outdoor exhibits, people will say "you like sea turtles" and then they turn around and buy something, either a painting, print, or merchandise. Obviously, I'm not the only one who likes sea turtles. This one, and my collection of sea turtles available can be seen on my sea turtle page.
I just had to do a giraffe! And he kicks off the 30 paintings in 30 days event. I have been participating in this bi-annual event for several years, and it is always a good way to focus on painting and promoting every day. The daily painting gets uploaded to the website linked above, which links back to my website. It's a hectic schedule, but each time I do it, my preparation is starting further in advance of the start date.
Interspersed in this month are outdoor shows and indoor exhibits which can be found on my Exhibitions & Festivals webpage.
