This is an oil painting on a wooden panel. This painting received a gold metal from the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.This painting was inspired by soft memories from my trip to Switzerland. I was so mesmerized by the beauty and kindness of the Swiss cows. They were always roaming freely throughout the rolling hills and flowering fields. You could hear the distant melody of bells and sure enough, there were always cows nearby. You could calmly approach them and they would come to you. Their sweet disposition was incredible and their long flowing tails were so graceful in the fresh breeze from the mountains.
