"Best Friends"


A young lady i used to work with asked me to paint these two,
for one of her relatives for Christmas. 
I had a difficult time with it at first as is often the case with commissions. 
But yesterday it started to take on the life i always look for. 
The results are very pleasing to me. 

I was going to call it "Best Friends Forever" but as you know 
the likelihood of these cuties being around still are slim. 
This is why i like to paint cows. 
They give us so much and are only here for a short while. 
I can honour them in a painting and love doing so. 
Acrylic on canvas, 22 X 28.
