cow trails


Free Your Mind/the Rest Will Follow (24x18, acrylic on canvas, 995.) was the cow who created the segue of a new series of cow paintings either created or finished (so far) in 2017.

Why cows? and birds and rabbits?  
One thing that cows, birds and rabbits have in common is that we are all familiar with them.  No matter where we live, more than likely we usually all have access to these living beings.  Cows, birds and rabbits can be found almost anywhere.  And, more importantly, we usually observe them in groups: herds, flocks or colonies.

I hope my work reminds the viewer that although every individual is more than likely part of a group, they are also, more importantly, a unique individual.  Perhaps these groups of animals we sometimes overlook because of how often we see them, can be seen differently.  Perhaps instead of noticing herds, we'll start to notice individual quirks and idiosyncrasies in each being which are all necessary when creating community.

Bernadette (36x48, acrylic on canvas, 2450.) was painted after having met a cow on the side of the road in Fruita, Colorado two years ago.  She has been and will continue to travel with me until she finds her forever home (adoption papers required).  You can follow Bernadette's travels on my instagram account @createveryday.
