Day 3: Young “Muckle Coo”

My Day 3 painting is of a young “muckle coo”; a Scottish Highland Cow.  I found a small herd of Highland Cattle while “taxiing” my daughter and asked the owner if I could take reference photos.  Amazing to find Highland Cattle here in Ontario, but surprisingly there are a few up the road from our hobby farm, the ones I found, and some in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  This young fellow was quite curious at me taking photos and stood up to get a better view of me.

Note: for the Challenge, I will ship within Canada & U.S. for free if you purchase a “30 Day Painting” during September, 2014, so if you live in Canada or the U.S., select “Pick Up” as the shipping option so you aren’t charged for shipping and add a note or complete my contact form on my website with your shipping address. Framing can be added so the painting is ready to hang, for an additional charge depending on frame.
