Hay Bales

Hay Bales

Forgive the original title....this was named in a hurry before submission at the Kerrville Outdoor Painter's Event.  You can see the lone cow to the left of one bale...I kept trying to name the piece something to do with the cow (like Breakfast, or Head First, or Back End), but my friend, Laurel Daniel, talked some sense into me and helped me get to something less risky and more straightforward in the short time that we had--thank you, Laurel.  

I painted this piece in the company of cattle...they were an active bunch that morning, constantly moving in and out of my view.  At one point, three made their way to within several yards of me and happily ate while keeping an eye on things (and I kept an eye on them).

Titles can be tricky… you know you are in trouble when you giggle like a first grader at every option. Sorry if I was being a total "Butt-in-ski" (pun intended, couldn't resist)… :) Back to the painting - I really love all those delicious greens!

Ha! Thank goodness you were right there. We had a few good laughs, anyway!
