Gimme Some Cow Candy

We visited our friends' family farm this weekend and I got to photograph cows being fed. One came up to me and got her face right up under my camera so I snapped her picture. She thought I had cow candy, then turned around afterward to see all the other cows with bowls full of it. Well, I didn't trick her on purpose. Her eyes were so big as she tried not to get her horns caught, lifting her chin up. So cute. 16 x 20 x 1.5 oil on gallery wrap canvas.

Great composition and good job w/ the whites, which can be a challenge.

Great crop and style! I was just commenting on Dean Haven's cow painting and their curiosity. They are so funny in the way they slowly sidle up to see what the heck's going on. You captured it perfectly in this!

Ooooh, your grays are so rich and vibrant! But, I bet you knew I'd say that. Beyond that, Camille, I'm impressed by how fast you paint!
16x20...done! Next!

Thanks to all you nice people!

Diane! How wonderful to hear from you! I also got an email from Helen this past week -- so great to be in touch with 3 Walters kids and to hear that you like my art. That really makes me happy. Please send me your email (mine is on this page somewhere I believe) so I can keep in better touch with you. I'm on Facebook too. Thank you so much for stopping by! XO
