|Hereford | 24 x 30 | Oil on canvas|
This will be the final painting headed up to Tree's Place Gallery on Cape Cod for my two person show with M. Collier on July 14th. I decided to venture outside the still life realm here at the end, and throw in one of my cows for this last piece. Every once in a while you've just got to paint a cow. This was one of my favorite shots from August 2010, when Karen and I drove down to Statesboro Georgia to visit Sandbriar Farms. Kyle Knight, the owner, was kind enough to let us roam around his fields, and take all the pictures we wanted. It was a very hot, but fun day.
I have to say it always feels good to finish up a number of paintings for a show, but I can never truly relax until they've been varnished, packed, shipped, and have arrived at the gallery intact. I should send these out early next week - with the exception of Hereford, that'll need to dry a bit longer. Then it's just a matter of waiting for the email that states, "they're here, and undamaged".
Now I've got to get to work on paintings for my other, neglected galleries. They've all been very patient this year, something for which I'm very grateful.
