Day 30 of the 30 in 30 Challenge
I decided to end this challenge where I began... painting cows. When I attended RIT, painting realism wasn't exactly in vogue. Abstracts were king and realistic paintings were old-school. I needed a way to pass my courses without selling my soul… I began painting cows, because the pattern of the black-and-white patches passed as abstractions. My paintings were large and very abstract looking, but in reality, they were very realistic... cow spots. After graduating from Grad school, I became known for my cows. The ladies in this painting stand on this bridge every day at 7:30am and at 7:36am they head out to pasture. You can set your watch by them. If you head down Rt 353, toward Salamanca, look off to your left to see the girls playing bridge.

I have enjoyed reading your daily posts about your plein air adventures. It is almost like I arrived with my cup of coffee for a wrap-up on the day's painting.

Pull up a chair, put up your feet and listen to a few stories while the paint dries.
