Moodest

6" x 6" oil on canvas panel
SOLD

Cows really are cute. How can you not love them? They let you get pretty close before they walk away. And, I'm not sure if they walk away because of human presence or they're just looking for a little bit better bite to eat. This one really seems "moodest". She doesn't look vain, she seems humble. She's held back by a sense of what is fit and proper. She is not calling attention to her body. So, yes, she is moodest.

Very well done piece, Pam! Like you, I love painting all the color in "white". A mooving painting. :)

Great values on this cow... white in the shadows is hard!
