New Hope, Brahmans, cattle, Florida Art
Painted this a couple of years ago, but didn't get to post it because I couldn't get a good image of it. I wanted to make it available in prints, so I tried again. (This painting includes a unique custom frame.)
I actually took pictures of this calf peeking around a tree. The mother was a little farther away. Took a lot of nice images of different cows and bulls as well. Next, I sketched out some ideas before drawing this composition onto the canvas. I added water and mist to the background for that foggy morning haze that is so common around here. The flowers add the feeling of spring, a time for new life and hope.
