An Alabama Cow

"An Alabama Cow" • 4.25"x 7" Watercolor on board
I missed the 'Week 6/7' challenge from Karin Jurick's Different Strokes from Different Folks, so I really wanted to get this week's done.
Being an animal artist, I was very pleased when Karin's image for this week was a cow!! I sat down and started to sketch out a piece, but still feeling a little guilty that I hadn't done the previous challenge (which was super-ubo hard) I came up with something different for this painting.
Karin's subject was an Alabama cow, so I worked in a well known phrase and featured our subject, who's name should be...well....what else but...um...Dixie, ;-) don't you agree?!?
After a long week this was really fun to do, thanks Karin!

Holy cow! I can't even draw/paint letters straight on, and you've done them PERFECTLY at an angle! Really fun piece.

Great piece, great idea. Fun to see something really different. You did a fantastic job on this.

Wow! Thank you everyone for your great comments :-)

This was my "make up" piece for not getting around to doing the stock market challenge, so I am glad the extra bit I put into it went over so well. It was fun to do.
And to Leslie S. about the lettering...I confess...I am/was an advertising illustrator, so type comes easier to me ;-)

Thanks again everyone!
