Black Angus

Black Angus

6" by 6" original oil on archival board

How was your weekend?  I worked quite a bit but did manage to take in a movie and had dinner with a friend.  . I also got out on my bike after a long hiatus.  The tires were kind of flat and I couldn't find my bicycle pump! I spent oodles of hours working on my web sites Only a couple more links and pages and I will start work on my newsletter as it is almost March!  My kitty is in my lap again and insists on laying on my arm while I am typing.  I really had a good time working on this Angus. It is so much fun to play with colors on the
dark fur. I guess a cow's hair could be called fur...  I tried something different than my usual toning the canvas with red.  I began with a hot pink color and then accented the same! I like how the bits of pink shows through in places.  It will be a busy week getting ready for the upcoming show at the Artists Gallery... It's Raining Cats and Dogs.  I will be entering several pieces and the opening is this Friday.  Hope you can make it if you live locally.  Have a great Monday!
