New Painting, Beginning, Middle, and Almost Finished...

 A little baby watched over by a loving mom...

Here is how they started, just a rough rendering of an idea
This is when i wonder, what the heck was I thinking... 

This is when i brush on, and often wipe off and start all over again....

Now they begin to take shape and form and personality... I'm still wondering if this will be another wasted canvas....  But I decide to stick with it...  I have so little time for hours wasted

A few more hours, and now i feel like they are becoming what i envisioned...  
I decide to let the strokes be loose, and the color be interesting by adding blue... and of course pink on their dewey noses...  and here and there....  
I feel like this one is close, and maybe i'll just stop for now... maybe it's finished ....
Although no painting is ever finished if you can get your hands on it.....

And they lived happily ever after....

the end


  1. wow now that is really amazing to see how that evolved. I am kind of shocked to see how basic it is at the start, but of course, it needs to get the general shape and then the detail works with the brush strokes come in. Really great Cindy. Thanks for showing how you work. Did you take pics of the Miss Mustard Seed cow as it evolved?
