Just finished up this sweet little lady this weekend...
well, almost finished, she's not even signed yet!
I named the painting, "Good Morning Miss Daisy" because you can see that the first morning light is just coming out from behind the dark silhouette of the trees
and I imagine that this soft furry face is right there every morning to offer a gentle greeting
My initial craving was to paint a white cow with a big pink sateen bow around her neck... but i think i might try that on one of the prints and photograph her for giclee prints as is...sans bow - hmmm, we'll see
I know it's hard to believe, not everyone wants a painting with a big pink bow somewhere in it...!
Almost a year ago, a very sweet lady emailed me asking if maybe some day i could paint her cows. I told her to go ahead and send pics and maybe one day i would find just the right moment to paint from one of the photos...
I did tell her that there was no telling when or if it would happen, because i don't even know myself sometimes until the mood strikes me.
It's been a while, and i imagine she thinks i had forgotten all about her...
but i most certainly did not...
I had a print of her beautiful cow sitting in my art room
and that photo started pulling at my heart
Well last weekend the moment came, and i felt compelled to paint this beautiful girl... i have searched out the owner's email and sent her a letter explaining that her cow is ready.
She is under no obligation to buy the painting -
who knows what her circumstances are now...
But I did promise I'd offer her first choice -
Now I'll just wait to see if i hear back from her
In the meantime, I'm enjoying her right here in my house
so either way,... I'm sure she'll find a good home somewhere,
even if it is with me!
so that's the simple little story of the painting named
"Good Morning Miss Daisy"
