HOLLOW

A floating cow? Sure, cows can float if they are HOLLOW... and full of methane gas. Or if they happen to be a Holy cow like this one.

This is a 24"x30" oil painting I did recently. It was a lot of fun to do. Now I'm wondering what do do with it. : )

This makes me laugh! If you have any friends/family about to have offspring, it would make a great painting for a nursery.

Sort of a Magritte quality to it, yes? Funny and nice to see you're continuing to enjoy yourself painting!

the expression on that cow is priceless, she's total unfazed as she floats away

ArtSnark said...

Have to agree with Hans77 - the cow's expression is classic. Clever spin on prompt

Sell it to a milk company. (Seriously!) This made me laugh out loud. Holy cow!

Doug said...

Thanks for the encouraging words, all you comments posters! I appreciate it!

... and ditsychick6, I doubt that a milk company would want this cow... since there seems to be no way to get milk out of it... : )

This is really cute! The rectangular shape of the cow and the halo make this illustration really unique. Great job!
