And The Cow Jumped Over The Moon...

Here is a picture I did for my cousin as one of her baby shower gifts from moi. I forgot to take a picture and she graciously sent me a copy. I took pictures of it in the works (which I will also include below), but must have been distracted when I finished.



This is my version of the cow jumping over the moon. I know most artists actually have the cow going over the moon, but I thought it made more sense that the cow THINK she is jumping over it, but in reality only jumping over the reflection. Deep, I know =). And you might not know this to look at it (or maybe you would), but I really struggled with that little dog. Boy, was he trying my patience. The cat, I actually found a picture of someone's cat standing on its hind legs, so that wasn't too tough. And I was never good at drawing cows, or horses for that matter. You wouldn't think it would be that difficult, given the fact that I spent the first thirteen years of my life on a farm. But all in all, I was pleased with the way this turned out. Otherwise it would have seen the trash bin and not a fluffy pink package wrapped for the giving.

So, there you have it. While the Farmer is sound asleep in bed, he is blissfully unaware that his animals and dishes are throwing a party, celebrating the secret love affair and ultimate elopement of the dish and spoon. The cow is the most giddy of them all, and the little doggy is laughing hysterically at the spectacle she is making of herself. The cat, really, is just happy he has an audience to play his music for. And the trees, well, have no idea...
