I've been spending entirely too much time in Blogland today, but I just couldn't pass up "What's on Your Wall Wednesday." I think I'm finding out that Wednesday is a big theme day among bloggers. So today I give you Super Cow. That's what LBeau calls him.
Several years ago I read an article on primitive animal portraits in Southern Accent magazine. Primitive animal portraits depict the animals, pigs, cows, sheep and such, as larger than life, and their bodies are usually proportioned way too big for their legs. I decided I wanted one, but I didn't have the funds to purchase an antique, so I asked Aunt Mary if she would paint one for me. She had previously done another oil painting that hangs in my powder room. I wrote about it in another post that you can read here.
I decided that I would have her paint a black angus cow, since that's what my grandfather raised. The painting used to hang over my sofa and later over my fireplace. It now hangs over my bed. LBeau likes to make fun of it, but I think he secretly likes it. He did, however, once tell me, "No more pictures of farm animals."
