Yesterday's new painting: Head-Scratching Heifer

Oil on masonite, 6" x 8"

So, here she is. This is oil on masonite. The official size is 6"x8"; if you want to know the exact size, it's 5 5/16" x 7 13/16". One of my next tasks will be to figure out how to handle sales through my Blog. This piece has been sold, but if you're interested in a similar painting, the price would be $115 plus shipping and insurance.

I think I have figured out how to set up my email link: see the link below my profile.

There are things I'd love to improve about this, but I am pretty pleased, and I'm trying to leave my paintings as they are when the day's time is done, by and large. I think she looks solid and meaty (not as in "beef"), I enjoy the colors, and I feel like scratching her head myself.

I hope you enjoy her.

Thanks, Shrimpy! (Shari and I have a lot of names for each other - for Shari, mostly Shipply, Shrimpy, or some variant; for me, mostly Orlando or some variant.)

Ooh, I like it! Well-composed, beautiful colors, shape, tone. Paint more!

Many of the things on dailypainters are also excellent (though one looks remarkably like the cover on a c. 1970's sci-fi novel). I would by them if I had money, and walls.
