Trying to get some cattle rounded up. I love their big eyes (and noses). A fencing catalog arrived (Premier thinks we still have the goat dairy) and, looking for anything to distract myself I guess, I found a photo in it of a group of Angus cattle. So, I did a small, then a larger painting of them.

I just adore turkeys — they were so interesting to raise and so beautiful when their iridescent feathers sparkled in the sun. Plus, I learned that they will really peck your toes if you happen to be wearing flip-flops. With Thanksgiving around the corner, a turkey painting seemed appropriate. I did this from a photo I took of a few big boys we raised.Turkeys, 18×24″ oil on canvas
