I’ve grown fond of the these cows I drive by twice a day 6 days a week on Brasstown Rd. Even though I’m often in a hurry, pre-occupied or tired, I always look for them. On this day, soon after they had just gathered around a fresh hay bale, I knew I had to stop and take some reference photos for a painting. I was delighted and inspired to paint from this humorous image I received.
Later, I described the setting to one of my co-workers who laughed and responded with, Sorry, Private Party. I immediately knew Kayla had just given me the title for my painting.
