and the cat. He has no real style. 
He just goes on trying other things.” – Pablo Picasso

HOW NOW BLACK COW? ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

HOW NOW BLACK COW? original painting (watercolor) is 9 x 12.  This reference photo was deceivingly difficult to do with the varying grades of darks in the cows.  I debated whether it should go in the circular file.  The jury is still out on that.  This is the second attempt also. 

The cow is of the bovine ilk;
One end is moo, the other, milk.

BLACK IRIS ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

BLACK IRIS original watercolor painting is 6 x 6 inches, Arches 140 pound paper.

Thus in each flower and simple bell,
      That in our path untrodden lie,
      Are sweet remembrancers who tell
      How fast the winged moments fly.
Time will steal on with ceaseless pace,
      Yet lose we not the fleeting hours,
      Who still their fairy footsteps trace,
      As light they dance among the flowers.
~Charlotte Turner Smith (1749–1806)
