Private collection. St Claire Shores Michigan
The approach to painting it was was loose. It was done nearly entirely with a painting knife, which gives it a rich texture. The knife also lends itself to painting in dabs of paint which mimic the way light plays on surfaces outdoors. The cow is a lovely series of angled knife strokes. There is a mild vibration where dabs of differing color quietly bounce off each other.
Contrasting nicely with active strokes, is the calm of the setting. A cow pauses near a farm stream. Cows have that beautiful calm about them.
