Belted Cows

Two small works of Belted Galloway's will be added to my website. Above is "Belted Cow #1" and below is the second, appropriately titled "Belted Cow # 2." Done in casein on board, they are being framed in neat thick stressed white frames...ready to go! You can see them on my website in the Small Works Collection.

The weather holds fair on the farm...but they say a touch of fall is in the works for the end of the week. I, for one, will be busy working on a bigger Belted Cow casein in the studio.....but will be taking breaks and deadheaded and trimming back perennials in my gardens. I also want to get some use out of my new riding helmet. In a sense.....getting my life back!

Love Galloway's

Always wanted to raise them on dads farm. Maybe some day. They are hardy cows.

I love your Beltie's and love Beltie's in particular. Dad's side of the family came from Wigtown so we spent a lot of time in the area during holiday time when I was young. You've captured them so well :)

These are great - flip them in any other direction, squint down, and they become gorgeous abstractions. Nice job, Kathi!!

Thanks all... and Kim..I do that a lot when I paint..flip the image around and paint upside down ...look at my paintings in a mirror, etc.
Maybe I should promote them as abstract art and hang them upside down!!! LOL
