February 2 - Cow

"Long Day Grazing" Today was a very busy day, going into the city, looking at homes, and coming home late. I'm tired, and so I painted this cow, a mother, solitary in existence, and calm. The image I needed tonight. Original acrylic, 5x7 inches.

February 1 - Burro

Beginning the month with a little burro, this "Mexican Mobile" was from an image I remember of the burro who was tied to graze until needed by the family for transport which I saw on one of my Central American trips. I have some other images for future paintings, too. I like the color in the ground around this fellow, and his resigned, yet pleasant posture. Original oil, 6x6 inches
