6" x 8"  Oil
$80.00 + $10. s/h

HOLIDAY SALE  All paintings sold in December are 20% off my regular prices

As I've mentioned in the past, I often Google topics to find a title for one of my pieces, or for information when writing a post.  Today I googled "cow poems".  I had "A Child's Garden Of Verses" by Robert Louis  Stevenson when I was a child, so when I saw this poem I thought it fit!

Stevenson, Robert Louis (1850–1894).  A Child’s Garden of Verses and Underwoods.  1913.
24. The Cow
THE FRIENDLY cow all red and white 
  I love with all my heart: 
She gives me cream with all her might, 
  To eat with apple-tart. 
She wanders lowing here and there,         5
  And yet she cannot stray, 
All in the pleasant open air, 
  The pleasant light of day; 
And blown by all the winds that pass 
  And wet with all the showers,  10
She walks among the meadow grass 
  And eats the meadow flowers.

J'adore regarder la vaches... Elles ont un air si bon...
Très jolie peinture et merci pour les jolis mots qui l'accompagnent.
Je vous renouvelle mes voeux que cette nuit de noël soit douce...
