Black and White Irish Cow

12" by 12" on wrap around canvas with sides painted.

Well, Andrew just had his first time out driving alone as a licenced driver. I did pretty well but did breathe a bit easier when I heard him come through the door! He drove to soccer practice and went through Wendy's on the way home. I still remember my first time out on my own...such a thrilling sense of freedom. Somewhere along the way I lost the thrill of driving. My boys like that because I often let them do the driving when we are together. It was another busy day of painting and correspondence and running errands. I worked on two other pieces that I will be posting tomorrow night. I have been very drawn to the beach as a subject lately...must be since I have not been yet this year. That is a crime when you think about it. I only live 25 miles from it! My brushes are calling to me to be cleaned and put away. Till we meet again, I will leave you with this thought!

I was going through the Daily Painters Movement website and clicked to see your blog. I'm glad I did.
This cow is wonderful.
The quote is especially meaningful, too. It is such a challenge to stay on track, but not impossible, especially when trying to paint every day! Yes, just paint whatever is nearest.
