Feeding time



3-6"x6"
oil/panels sold


You probably can't tell but this is a scene of lots of cows....heading back to the barn to feed....in a snowstorm. I love painting cows in snow and always enjoy the massive exodus of cows leaving their range to feed on not so natural feed. Pavlov's cows I suppose. At any rate I kept true to the abstraction of the piece. You need not see cows, nor feed. Hopefully, you see a line and a mass gravitating towards another mass. This thought could be abstracted more but I always teeter(not twitter) on the edge of abstraction and representation. The piece is 3 6"x6" panels. I had to do some arranging to make it work as 3 individuals and a single.(Think Jungian individuation) google it!





I'm doing a 3 day show this weekend in Jersey and may not get to paint anymore before the show. I'm preparing labels...reframing...getting the van ready with shelving... blasting the new ones with heat and air to dry...blaa blaaa blaaa. Cheers, and if you're in central New Jersey swing by the show.......

Works for me! This tryptic is a total success as a representational abstraction of Jungian snow cows.

Thanks Loriann. Looks like you guys will get decent snow. I'm not sure how it will affect the show. I won't be painting this weekend. Just trying to sell.
