Afternoon Grazing

I created this painting because so many people in our area have cows on their land. Some are for just miking and some are for, well you know…We all gotta go sometime or other.

    • Hi Jen! So good to see you here today…You feeling better now. I sure hope so, my friend.
      I wouldn’t make a good farmer’s wife either…I wouldn’t even want to milk the cow…Lol…Just kidding.
      Thanks for coming in, and thank you for the comment on my painting, Jen!

  4. Hi Deb… my mind has run away with me with this painting! It was telling me that just over the hill there are hundreds of other cows, waiting to be told they can move forward. The lone cow that we see is on look out duty. But what are the cows waiting for?
    Sometimes just seeing a picture fires the imagination, and this one has certainly done that for me! Great one, Deb!

    • That is wonderful to hear how my work has sparked imagination for them…I love it, and I love what it sparked in you. Maybe the cows that’s alone is an outcast, or looking for a tree for shade.
      I’m really glad you like this one. Thanks for commenting, Tom!

  5. That’s a really neat one. It does have a dream-like quality. I think I feel like that cow, lost in the pasture sometimes.

    • Maybe they do get a little lost sometime, Binky. Might be why they need Herders and dogs to gather them.
      Thanks for the comment, Binky!

    • Wow! What wonderful news, Noelle! A little granddaughter! What’s her name, what did she weigh? You got to send me photos!… Seriously!
      How come your the one that’s brain dead from the little one instead of the momma? It’s not suppose to be this way! Are you mostly just tired because you play with her all the time?
      Congrats, Noelle!!!
      Oh, and thank you for the comment on my painting too!
      Summer?…Nice.

  12. My grandparents used to rent their land to a good friend and all his cattle were for milk and breeding, but those who got too old – well, we all eat the result unless we are vegetarians…

    Love the picture hun! 🙂

    Love and squishy hugs!

  13. Hehe, you remind of my grandparents which they have a cow too. They are old but they still cannot live without. 😀

    • I don’t have a cow of my own. Good thing too..With the economy I think I would have to trade it’s milk in for it’s meat…Lol. For the price of a lb of burger I can get a gallon of milk.

  15. Great Cow Painting. I learned at an early age not to name a calf. It is harder to eat something you have been calling by name.

    Reply
    • That right, Bo!! You and I both know what their fate is.
      Thanks for the great comment about my painting, Bo! And it’s good to see you as always!

  16. Awww, this is lovely, Deb. I love the little cute cow.
    Well, “little”… I don’t know if it’s appropriate actually. 😀
    Anyway I came to say “hello” but I’m still revising a lot… I have 4 final exams to take. And it’s huuuuuuge.

    • Are you fretting about that award?…Take your time, hun. Living your life is more important than these silly blogging things…Of course that might not have even been on your mind when you commented…Just thought it might be.
      Thanks for the lovely comment about my painting, But even more than that. Thanks for coming by just to say “Hi!”
      Good luck with those exams. No not luck. We get good grade from hard work and lots of studying…So you go girl. I’m rooting for ya!
      Hugs, Deb xx

  17. That’s one beautiful bovine, Ms. A! And not a bad spot for a graze, either! Nicely done, indeed!

    • Oh, Bob, how nice of you to say that about my cow!…Thank you! He should be happy with the land for grazing.
      Thank you for commenting, Bob! You always say such inspiring things to get me more motivated!

    • You know, you are right! I forgot…Sorry Cedric. But they got to get the milk to get the cheese.

  19. lol you’re so cute 🙂 yes we all gotta go sometime but I’d rather be a milking cow than the other kind;) The painting is so great Deb, the cow looks completely real, I just dont know how you do it! Wonderful.

    Reply
    • Lol…You like that last line, eh…Well, what can I say. I’m like you though, I would rather be milking them. They’re such a joy to have with us. Because once we eat them, well…Nope, I’m not going there.
      How I do it?…I can be a bit obsessive at times. Plus lots of practice.
      I’m glad you like the painting, Nikki! Thank you so much for commenting!
      Love and Hugs, to you, my friend,

  20. Aww… I love the moo! Spring in california is beautiful with ranges of green mountain in one side and the other with a vast ocean, while we drove so many times along the cliffs of the west coast. It is nice to watch the black and white cows gaze and walk around the mountains. You painting just made me remember CA…again!

    • Hi Piyra! How are things going in New York?…Sound like you miss Cali a little.
      Thanks for the comment about my painting…I’m really glad it brought you fond memories.

    So far, and I have been viewing your artistic wickedness for a while now but this is definitely one of my favourites and you have captured the image of the grazing cow exceptionally well I think 🙂 Indeed I like the whole scene…

    Have a wonderful day today Deb 🙂

    • Aw, it’s details that you like then…The cow was sort of tricky to get in there.
      I’m very pleased that you like this painting, Andro!
      Thanks for your wicked comment, my friend!!
      Have a wonderful rest of Tuesday.

  22. Indeed. Who is to say that steak is not a higher purpose for a being? Wonderful work 🙂

  23. Really cool!!!
    The cow looks transparent. But I think putting turtle in that painting is better than cow 😉

    Reply
    • That’s the sun haze I painted over him. You would think turtle would look better instead of a cow…Any particular turtle that you had in mind?
      Thank you for the lovely comment, Kroten!
