The painting is 8" X 8", Winsor & Newton water mixable oils, on gallery wrapped canvas. I took suggestions from several other artists and I'm happy with it now. I posted it on my website and you can order cards or prints there.
I'm also playing with two other canvases, but they are not finished yet. I started on the heifers this week (I had prepared the canvas board quite a while ago). I think I'm going to call it siesta time when it's all done. I don't like the red I used for the tags and I have already washed that off and will try a different red when I go back to working on this one. This is my first time paintings cows, although I've done other animals. The cows were resting behind barbed wire at the Four Corners Farm in Vermont. I don't think I'll include the wire in the final painting.
