I had fun over Christmas filling orders for my sales on ety – completing a precious cat that was commissioned – and creating three new paintings. I found two donkeys names Igor and Tiger! The donkey I named Orange Julius is one of them. The other donkey that is with a barn, was a donkey located on the road between Fredericksburg and Kerrville. There was a young one and a really old with, this was the young one. I struggled with the donkeys withy their white muzzle and the white around the eyes – but am feeling much more comfortable. The pig was only my second pig he had such a terrific pose that I would love to do him again. As always – prints
are available at my etsy site under my name – Annette Bennett
As you drive around the Texas Hill Country, you will see mostly Angus and Angus cross cattle. I tried to do some black cows many months ago – and they are quite a challenge to do – especially when you do them as close-ups, as I do. You can’t just paint a cow all black – that really isn’t the true color and doesn’t show definition, etc. So – I have struggled a bit with the black cows. But here are two of my latest – I incorporated purple, turquoise, Hope you like them.
I am working on another one which I hope to have posted in a day or two – of two black baldies – I think I am going to call it – “double dip”
I am showing my origins at Agave Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas and The Mason Gallery in Mason, Texas. Many of my works are available in Giclee prints at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/AnnetteBennett?ref=search_shop_redirect.
