This painting developed as a story that needed to be told. An old rancher friend of ours was going on about dairy cows one day. He was a black angus man… He said that “He would never have one of those magpie cows!” meaning the black and white dairy cows. (That’s not the cowboy way, you know?) I always liked the visual there, and when coming across some pictures of longhorn cows, I decided to tell Oscar’s story, or a twist on his story anyway. So, here is my version – and he is most definitely not a cow! This painting is 18×24.
