19. When You Decide To Go Big

Aug 1, 2016 | 30 Days of Fun, thirty-days projects | 4 comments


When we vacationed in Costa Rica, I was surprised to learn the country is rather serious about its cattle ranching. This first came to my attention the morning we went on a flat-bottom boat tour of the Tarcoles River, an adventure that gets you up close and way-too-personal with the crocodiles that live there. To distract myself from the horror, I kept my eyes on distant shores, where the white Brahma cows hung close and seemed just as befuddled with the entire crocodile exercise as I was. I developed a little crush on those cows, snapping photograph after photograph after photograph.




Then I had this oh-so-fun idea. What if I painted one of those cows…five feet tall!

A few hours and a lot of great music later I was on my way.

She’s still in the early stages, but I’ve got my joy on and can’t wait to get back to her. I think I’ll add some color and whimsy.

Who knows what might happen next?
