My photo
When I paint, no matter what the subject matter is, I always strive to paint with loose, expressive brush strokes, using bold, vivid colors and a sense of humor. I work very spontaneously, mostly in mixed aqua media on paper because I like the way the paint flows and I like the transparency of the colors resulting in an organic piece. I constantly experiment with colors, techniques and subjects.

Charlie Bull? Number 4

Turns out that not all Bulls have horns and some cows do have horns...Sooo that creates a dilemma.   I did not get a close enough look at this one to confirm gender.  If  she is a girl, I will call her Char-lene.  If he is a boy, I will call him Char-lie.  That is the only solution I have, but either way, 
doesn't this one put a smile on your face??

  1. All thru school my name was too long (charlene ann hoffmann) so it was always abbreviated to 'charl'. THAT was then shouted out as 'Charles Hoffmann", or 'Charlie Hoffmann' Now add the fascination with cows and a very nice bovine collection, and you see why this is a fitting tribute! Nice job Polly!

  2. This is so ironic! I noticed your painting on 30 in 30 and loved it. The expression is priceless and colors are right up my alley. I'll respond to your question thru email.

  3. I love the expression on this one. And yes, it did make me smile! Look forward to seeing more of you in this challenge,

    1. Thanks Pam...He is handsome, isn't he.

  4. Your farm animal close-ups are so cute and funny!

  5. Thanks Cindy. They keep me smiling for sure.
