Help me 'Name This Cow' !

This is the latest cow i just finished painting
she's still sitting on the easel drying.

I like her dewy eyes and pink ears, and her eyelashes ...
What is it that's so good about cows?!? 

  She is looking right at me as if i just called her name to offer her a treat
 but she doesn't have a name!!

Ya'll are great at this, so help me out... let's name this girl!

 blurry photo i took in a rush, of her in my living room...just to show you her size

here she is without the fence... i felt the painting needed something to balance all the weight on the right
so i just brushed in the idea of a fence
i was thinking of messing with the background some more, maybe adding sky and grass, but i hesitate to introduce more color in the painting for some reason... 
we'll see...
 like i've always said, 
if you can still get your hands on a painting... it is never finished!

Seeing her pink ears reminds me of this photo of a ceiling that Krissie from "Shingle Cottage" sent me...

She said it was the perfect peachy pink that i like
and she sooooooo nailed it

just look at this ceiling!
ohhh my gosh!
i love that she sent me this photo, and so "gets" me
isn't that sweet...
 and just look at that insane chandelier!
makes me want to paint my ceiling this exact same color!
and you know me,  i just might 

after going through 20,000 paint swatches of course 

Ok,... let me get back on track...

I'm terrible at naming things
so help me out here... 

what do you think this sweet girls name should be?

...the end...

  20. She is sooooo a "Clover". So sweet and pretty and fresh. You are such an awesome artist.

  21. Love the suggestion of "Petal". The fence is perfect. Do you sell your paintings? I'd love her hanging on my wall.

  22. Bessy is the name that comes to me. She looks like the cows we had when we were kids. Their noses were always so soft and wet. Such gentle creatures.

  23. Lila?? just the first thing that came to mind. Love the painting it is beautiful!!

  24. Harbormom says Pearl. Her name is Pearl. Just look at the soft pink-y pearl-y inside of her ears. Perfect match for the inside of a beautiful conch shell. SHELLY! Shelly-pearl! What a perfectly gorgeous painting...

My mother lived on a farm in Minnesota and grew up farming, she has a big thing for cows and collects them, I must show this painting of yours to her :)

  33. Oh, I like both Petal and Pearl! And she's gorgeous! Someday I am going to get one of your paintings! They are so gorgeous!

  34. I'd say name her Buttercup. I have always thought Cows possess an Inner Beauty of Spirit that shines through their Serene Faces. Your Art is just Beautiful!

    Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

  35. Cindy Thank You for coming for a Blog Visit... I just read your entire Bio and I had to Smile... so many parallels that I can relate to on a personal level! Mi Vida Loca is always an Adventure and never a dull moment... make mine a Pina Colada or a Glass of Moscato! *Winks*

    Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

  36. I love cows and your paintings picture them so beautifully! Hmmmm....thinking of a name for her. How about Josephine? Or Matilda, Abigail, Pheobe, June Bug? I can't decide either. Please let us know what you decide upon - thanks! Hugs, Leena

  37. She's got the look. I thin she's a Louella.

  38. I don't know why but as soon as I looked at her I thought Petunia. You are so talented!!!

  39. Cindy this is the sweetest painting. You are talented beyond words. The name that comes to mind to me is "Peaches" because you were inspired to paint the inside of her ears that peachy pink color.
    I'm sure that whatever you name her that she will soon grace someone's home. Wish it were mine....that is if I ever get a final home! LOL!
