Cow painting: Cow Clouds (Sold). Minnesota and South Dakota landscape paintings.

Here is a South Dakota scene with cows grazing on a hill and purple hills receding in the background, and a bright blue sky. I wanted the clouds to reflect the cows and landscape’s shapes. The paint is really thick on this painting – I went around and around with the clouds, and ended up painting around them with pure tube cerulean blue. This painting will be available in a few weeks through a gallery.

On a personal note, we’re home educating this year, and after I publish the post, I’m off to organize our day. :)
