"Calf" oil on 8x8 board

Baby Calf.
I just like the look of this young calf, living near to farm land is a good way to get pictures of the Spring and all the happenings for farmers. We take things for granted sometimes passing fields of cattle, horses and of course Holland Landing where a lot of produce is grown from Roses to carrots and onions.

This calf is one of many around here,so painting her made me think how fortunate we are, having the pleasure of seeing the country and all the hard work that goes on around us, we tend to take Farmers and their families for granted.

Painting was interesting with the light and shadow that caught her fur. I could see deep purple, dark and light brown, white and grey a lot of squinting going on! oil on board.



  1. baby animals are so cute.We don't see many around here so it's nice to see your calf. I love cow's eyes don't you? so mournful.
    Fine painting Barb.
