got milk?

Just finishing up a large piece of a bunch of cows in a pasture. To me this is the essence of summer in the country, and I knew I wanted to paint it the minute I saw this scene. It’s a rather large one, I believe 52×24″ so it should command some nice attention once it’s framed. It was a time consuming piece. There are a total of 16 milkers, and that’s a lot of anatomy to to consider, but I learned a lot from this one, and it gave my patience a workout. I have a tendency to start to rush things once the end is in sight, so it was a challenge to give that last cow the same level of attention and finish work as the first.

Hoping to get this one down to the gallery as soon as it’s dry.
