Cows in Normandy

This painting was one of my favorites. It was originally painted in 2005. It was actually still hanging in my dining room until I took it down a few weeks ago; it was time for a makeover as I couldn't stand it any longer. I knew there were a myriad of flaws, but at the time it was a break through painting for me. In the new version, I corrected both cows proportions, general anatomy, and form. I also wanted to complete the feeling of fogginess that in the original was relegated to the upper left corner...and with that, as usual, I needed to simplify the grass and unite it and the same with the bank of trees and bushes in the background.
