#316: Good Moo-rning

AVAILABLE 6x6 inch. Click to bid.
I'm loving all the commissions of people and pup portraits pouring in. Been painting portraits 8-10 hours a day. Just had to break away from it for a couple hours to paint a cow; painting a cow is like meditation. As soon as I started painting the cow the Boston officers' story started developing  on the News last night and it was 2 hours of high stress as the officers struggled for their lives as other officers chased down the suspect. My thoughts and prayers are with them today. Not sure if you can see it but I see some patchy strokes.
