Wisconsin Farms

The one thing you will see a lot of if you come to Wisconsin is cows. Yep they come in all colors. My favorite are the galloway cows. Some people refer to them as oreo cookie cows.  I do  look for them but don’t always find them. I’m not expert on cows but I do like to paint what I see.  Meet Elise the cow. 

P.S.  I know this is not a galloway.

Thinking of Spring

There is no snow on the ground which is unusual for January in Wisconsin.  It is wet and damp. It has been like this all week.  

So I started thinking of warmer weather. I took out my box of photographs looking for inspiration for a painting.  Then I saw this picture that I had taken this past spring of this chipmunk who is clearly enjoying his lunch.  

Yep I will paint him.   He seems to enjoy strawberries as much as I do.
