Springtime In Texas

I receive many inquiries from art lovers who ask me which of my oil paintings is my favorite. I often respond that the painting I am currently painting is my favorite!

But, truly, I do have a special place in my heart for my cow portrait, entitled Springtime In TexasThe manner in which this young cow is looking out at the viewer with his soft, direct gaze, often makes me feel as though he is about to speak. So, whenever I see him, I say hello to him. If you do the same, and listen closely, you might hear cow bells. I know, I do!

One of the best things about Springtime In Texas is this sweet cow portrait is arriving in the fall of 2021, as a hand signed giclée! If you order your giclée from my online art gallery, you too, will be saying hello in person!

Archival quality, hand signed giclées can be displayed anywhere in your home, anywhere your walls need a touch of color!

Giclées make wonderful gifts for the art lover in your life. Ordering them from my online gallery for delivery anywhere in the US can be the perfect answer to your gift giving needs. Give them as gifts on special occasions, including wedding presents, anniversary and birthday gifts and housewarming gifts.

I invite you to purchase your hand signed giclée – for your home, your office, or as a very special gift for a very special someone! Upon receipt, Springtime In Texas is sure to invoke feelings of warmth, love, and fun every day!

Thank you for visiting with me here, in my Artist’s Journal, On The Easel. I enjoy sharing my love of this very special cow portrait with you!
