The Red Cow, Hawaian Sky

The red cow is the start of a 12x12 painting. Cows are cute. I'd like to paint them all the time.  Here's the beginning of a new painting. I'm not sure how it will turn out but as I define the light source and shadows it should come together.
The chickens are starting to lay again and the birds of song are getting fired up, sure signs of spring.  It has been a long cold winter here in Tucson.  Highs are still only in the 60's and 70's. Pretty chilly I know.  I run the heater in the studio in the mornings and re-heat my tea several times before noon.  It is only then that I venture out to check on the birds and make sure the truck starts. I hear it's not good for the motor to run when it's too cold.
25 year anniversary trip to Hawaii being contemplated. We have friends there that take some pretty cool pictures...inspiring this large 24x24 skyscape.
