Golden Cows

Somewhere along the way I picked up a small obsession with cows, specifically, golden cows. I'm not quite sure how this came to be. I think I overheard a conversation about the biblical story of Aaron and Moses? I like the idea of gold, richness, and how dependent we are on these animals.

The painting above is an excerpt from a classical painting. I've forgotten the source. It was part of The 50 Project, for awhile during the project I was taking portions of paintings done by others and focusing in on aspects of the paintings.

I don't think I'm finished with painting cows for now. I see cows in my future!
