Cow Portrait Watercolor Painting by KneeDeepOriginals
Cows are some of KneeDeepOriginals' favorite animals, and after a recent trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway up into Virginia, where we saw several fields of grazing cows, I was inspired to do this new painting of a black and white cow against a pale blue sky.
I have three rescue dogs and a rescue cat and four chickens who enjoying roaming in my garden. But never do the dogs and chickens meet, except by staring at one another on occasion through the garden fence. Surprisingly, the cat seems little interested in the chickens.... she's pretty smart as I believe their claws would tear her apart. Outside of my own animals, I am involved in local fundraisers for the two county rescue organizations here as well as nearby county Humane Societies. I donate art, and occasionally music, in order to raise money for the care of the animals, education, spaying and neutering clinics, and I help with adoption. I wish I could do fostering as well, but at this time it's just not possible. One day, perhaps.
