Purple Cow Parade

Another playful pasture with this little group of cows. I never knew painting abstract cows could be so fun. I like taking recognizable organic shapes and breaking them down to their most basic planes. When I simplify the forms, it seems like I can push the color a little farther without making the piece go over the top.  Working on slightly abstract flowers this week hoping to inspire Mother Nature to get with the program. It was 22 degrees here this foolin'.

"After the Rain"  -- 11 x 14 Inches

Like all of us in the north, it is that time of year when I am itching for spring. I can almost smell that clean smell of the earth after it rains. Happy Spring everyone!
