Sweet Bovine Gal
© Norma Wilson, original oil on canvas 12" by 12"
Back when I was still working in pastel, I had thought of focusing on being a portrait artist. I love faces
and capturing a likeness, the unique spirit found in the eyes. Then, I began painting cows and other farm animals. I tried painting them in the landscape as part of a larger scene, but they drew me in. It was their faces that I loved.
So in a sense, I am still a portrait artist. I see each cow as unique and special and this gal really struck me as sweet. I hope you see that too!
