We are 'sisters in the cowfield' these days.. honestly I hadn't seen this post, and I did MY painting a year ago - but - how funny! I love your painting - you painted the cows perfectly! And there are some 'tweaks' to your blog (banner, etc) that I hadn't seen in a while, and am so very impressed with! You GO, girl!

Um... oh, yes, and I linked to you in my blog post today! You're inspiring!

Thanks so much for your lovely comments!

Kelley, I remember when you first posted that cow painting of yours ... I'm very impressed that you did it from life instead of a photo ... I can't believe it's been a whole YEAR! Time is just flying by these days ...

Karen, I found your blog through Kelley MacDonald and I'm so glad I did. I normally don't care for acrylic painting but I am so impressed with what you are doing!!? How DO you manage to work so much vibrant color into every piece and your edges have a wonderful softness, bravo!! I will be back for updates.
