Love Me Tender, Too (2007)

(30 x 40: Acrylic on Canvas)

is part of my Cow Town series. I have long loved animation, and the cows, with their sympathetic eyes, always cheer me up. Likewise, I love the smile the cows bring to the face of a young child... as well as many adults.


 

The first big cow that I painted is called "Love Me Tender." I decided I was never going to sell "the original cow", and so I created a second one with a similar composition. (This one includes the cow's tail and some different flowers.) This painting was first displayed at Wet Salon and Gallery in Austin in 2007.

Cow Trippin'  (2006)
(16 x 20: Acrylic on Canvas)
is where the CowTown series began. My friend Melissa King-Knowles told me a story of wandering through a darkened field that was bordered by a forest. As she drew closer to the the trees, she encountered the glowing eyes of three cows that were waiting to be fed. To create the cows, I first made paper cut-outs, continually adjusting the angle of the head and playing with colors. To date, most of the cows are purple and yellow.

Li'l Cow in a Big, Big World (2007)
(30 x 40: Acrylic on Canvas)

is part of my Cow Town series. While I usually paint adult cows, Li'l Cow embodies the anxiety we face in a world that can sometimes feel overwhelming. It may be a big, big world, but somehow, I think Li'l Cow will be okay. This painting was first displayed at Wet Salon and Gallery in Austin in 2007.

RothKow (2007)
(30 x 40: Acrylic on Canvas)
is part of my Cow Town series. In this series I have always loved the expression that emerges from the big eyes and tilted head, but after painting a couple of them, I decided I need to change up the background. Somehow, my appreciation for Rothko came to mind and so I worked that motif into the picture... and I ended up really liking the result. This painting was first displayed at Wet Salon and Gallery in Austin in 2007.

Something's Coming (2006)
 (30 x 40: Oil on Canvas)

is part of my Cow Town series. The very first cow painting (Cow Trippin', a 16 " x 20") was inspired by a friend's story and depicts three cows in a forest at night. To create the cows, I first made paper cuts, continually adjusting the angle of the head and playing with colors. To date, most of the cows are purple and yellow. When it came time to create the 30" x 40" Cow Town series, I eventually returned to the motif of 3 cows, with their eyes expectant as they are waiting for something. This painting was first displayed at Wet Salon and Gallery in Austin in 2007; it was also featured in 2011 at the International Contemporary Masters Exhibit at the Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Art in Las Vegas.

TexaCow (2008)

At 36 x 48, it is the biggest cow in the series... but what else would you expect from a homage to Texas?

Auburn Cow (War Eagle!) (2006)
(20 x 20: Acrylic on Canvas)

is currently the only orange and blue cow in the series. I went to Auburn University for my Masters and Ph.D. (in Rehabilitation Services and Special Ed.) This was a commissioned painting for a friend's father who is a veterinarian and fellow Auburn alum.

LSU Cow (Geaux Tigers) (2009)
(20x24: Acrylic on Canvas)


While I went to school at Auburn, I have friends who attended LSU. Since the purple and yellow color scheme lent itself to LSU colors, it was only a matter of time until I gave in and painted a cow homage to LSU.
