Number Sixty Two, 6 x 6 inch oil on panel

I take photos of cows when I'm driving in rural areas. Cattle have such great faces and expressions - I really love to paint them. This painting is a study for a larger studio piece I'm getting ready to start.
The ear tag says this is cow number sixty two. I like to imagine her real name is Gladys. I like the long and short brushstrokes, and the reflected colors of her surroundings (sky, grass, and other cows) in her coat.
I made this sign the other day, just for me. It's hanging on my studio wall.
