I'm Having a Cow A to Z Challenge




 I took this picture years ago on the Aron Islands on a photography trip. I have wanted to play with sketching it ever since.


What does Cow have to do with art?  Have you noticed the colorful cow art that is around these days?
They have sweet faces & are fun to draw. 





  This hangs on the wall in the office of one of my bosses...a hand surgeon.


 Doing more sketching is something I want to add to my artful life. My skills need honing to be sure, but I am putting it out there for all of you to see. Maybe next year I should do a sketch a day in April & see how I progress.

    1. I think that might be a great idea! I made a couple suggestions for future letters on your blog. I'll keep thinking of more as we go along.

    1. I did not do the one on my bosses wall. I noticed the other cow as well. Who would have thought there would be 2 cows for "C"
