I love to paint animals, especially cows. This time of being confined to my home studio has been a gift to me. It has enabled me to devote all my energy to painting what I feel deeply about. A number of additions have been made to the series of paintings I call "Bodacious Bovines". I am drawn to cattle that show attitude when I am watching photographing them, and I treat their paintings like portraits. The subjects of most of my bovine paintings are looking you right in the eye. This very young Brahma Bull has a sense of dignity about him as he quietly looks at you. The late afternoon light is glowing across his ears and creating a beautiful cast shadow pattern on his neck and upper chest.
