Pam, Beautiful, as always! Was this live, or from a photo? I can't imagine getting that up close and personal, with such a huge animal. Love this series!

I LOVE this guy--the close up nose/mouth, the strong pink strokes and he looks so sturdy!beautiful light and texture on his coat:-)

Hi Pam, excellent paintings. Your blog is wonderful. Living on Long Island we have beautiful beaches, but I love the cattle paintings and beautiful landscapes. Well done.

Gwen Bell said...

Up close and personal! Love this one!

Awww, look at those gorgeous eyes and soft fur!!

Thanks Nancy, This one is from a photo. But, I will admit I have been this up close w/ cows. I've participated in a branding, and have been right in the pen. They are pretty harmless.

Jan, Thanks. I love this guy, too!

Thank you Joan, I have been to Long Island and you do have gorgeous areas.

Gwen, Thank you. The sun really helps push the colors.

I love this series you are working on Pam...the cows are fabulous!

Laurel Daniel said...

These cows are great... and I especially love the intensity of this last one.

Pam Holnback said...

Vic, Thanks so much for your positive thoughts.

Thank you Elizabeth and Autumn, Cows are really fun! I think because they're really affectionate looking.

Dana, Thank you so much!

Thanks Laurel, The lighting really helped w/ the intensity.

Pam,
like the innocent and intimidating look of the cow...
they are both at extremes and merged here...
good stroke work...
congratulations...
