Shelley Kissing Rosie the Plimoth Cow
Gifted to Shelley for Christmas 2008
Water-soluble oil on canvas

I found my notes on this painting a few days ago. I was surprised to read that the same colors I used for Shelley’s face I also used for Rosie’s nose. I guess I forgot.

I used water-soluble oils for this painting over a decade ago. I haven’t touched my oils in at least three years. But the other day, I started playing with oil pastels. I think I would really enjoy using chalky pastels, but I can’t stand the sound they make on drawing surfaces.

I have a few unfinished paintings. I plan to work the oil pastels into them, and if not that, give them to Goodwill or the dump.
