Cow Painting of Ms Petunia

18x18 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg
Lately I have wanted to paint white petunias.  Painting whites are a challenge for me.  As all artists know...to paint whites you need to stay away from white!!!!  I also have so many reference photos of cows.  My son is a commission cattleman.  He also runs stocker cattle year round that graze almost in our backyard,  so I have a wealth of beautiful and diverse breeds and mixbreeds to choose as models for my cow paintings.  That being said.....I came across this beautiful Charolais cow photo and decided to paint her instead of the petunias.  Her name came very easy to me (laugh).  She is my flower for this week! She is listed in my Etsy Store.  Just click Petunia and you'll find her.

Oh, you make these cows so lovable! I like Miss Petunia! I want to sit down and have a long conversation with her in a sunny meadow. Well done!
