Early Morning Oreos, 6 x 6 inch oil on panel

I took the reference photo for this painting during a visit to Oklahoma last November. It was fun trying to capture with paint the morning sunlight on the landscape and the cows. They are Belted Galloway cattle, affectionately known as "oreos." I've seen a couple herds of them in Oklahoma, but only once in Iowa, and wouldn't you know it, I didn't have my camera that day!
