Cow Artwork Details

Colorful, untamed and cheerful all come to mind when I look at this cow artwork. It's loaded with abstract qualities but has enough definition and shape to give the viewer something to latch on to. A balance that appears easy but not simple to achieve.

Let Me Explain

The painting, like many, was created with layers. I like to add a little something to the painting and let it rest. Come back a day or two later, or when the time is right and add a little something else. This painting probably took a month to complete since each layer was well thought out and allowed to rest before the next one was added. This technique allows me to digest each layer and to react accordingly. So don't think this piece was just slapped together in ten minutes even though it looks spontaneous.
