Sometime this summer, I was at the frame shop waiting my turn when I noticed that the lady* in front of me had a very interesting little print. When I asked, she said it was a photo she had taken herself. Turns out she was a local artist whose latest project was taking pictures of cows in such a way that they looked like landscapes. Being a big fan of art that makes people smile, I thought her "cowscape" was charming.
So, when I was surfing through the paper this morning and saw that even more of her cows were going to be part of tonight's downtown gallery walk (article here), I decided I needed to go see some moo...er, um, more.
The slide show doesn't really do the cows justice. Up close (and 5 times the size of course) you can really suspend reality and see the cow as a prairie landscape. The hairy texture looks like exotic grass with a wide blue sky background. They were gorgeous, I only wish she would do more.
