Lisa the Cow

Oil on linen on panel, 6 x 6 inches -- Click here to buy

This is based on a photo of a cow I took at Bristol Flat, near Ellensburg, WA. This cow was resting on the grass. Her expression in the photo reminded me of the mysterious smile of Mona Lisa, hence the title. The gentle expression of her eye is the point of interest. I liked the complementarity of the red tag and the green background. I tried to create some variation in the white parts.
