Blue moon (on when its too late to do a painting)


I did this as a sketch and then I decided to try it as a painting. This was too much fun to take seriously, but here it is. Acrylic on canvas 12"X16"

Isn't there some kind of food named "purple cow"?

You changed the background because you didn't get a comment, didn't you? I don't remember what color it was before, but not sure about this one..... Love the cow and her eyes and expressive tilt of the head.!!!!

Marilyn,

I am at the point now that I don't do anything until somebody comments. I have changed the background again, and as soon as someone comments I will post the new version. It is all so well planned.

Comment update:

This looks like it's there now. I really like the texture that you have added. You do texture well and that is one of your trademarks. It gives your painting a sense of activity and life. When you leave it out I miss it. You may even add a little more to the foreground and background for my taste, but it is really complete now. Lots of character in this one.

Just chock this week up to a sorting out time. Your computer (brain) just needs to clean out some old files and reboot. Very normal and busy holiday periods are a good time to do that!
