|Patience the Cow|
She looks patient, doesn't she.
I always think of cows as patient. I supposed that's because of one of my favorite descriptive paragraphs in the world... When E.B. White describes the barn in Charlotte's Web.
"The barn was very large. It was very old. It smelled of hay and it smelled of manure. It smelled of the perspiration of tired horses and the wonderful sweet breath of patient cows. It often had a sort of peaceful smell - as though nothing bad could happen ever again in the world. It smelled of grain and of harness dressing and of axle grease... But mostly it smelled of hay."...Sigh...
He just makes you want to be there.
Cows have a way of staring right into your eyes.
Do not have a staring contest with a cow... She'll win.
Look at that expression.
She's saying, "You are standing at my fence. Please just take your picture and moooove along. Go on now. I'll wait. I'm patient."

I've been talking to her since I painted her eyes. I'll probably keep talking to her on my wall until someone decides she belongs on their wall.
