Drought Tolerant Front Garden

Last year we had our grassy lawn removed and planted drought tolerant plants instead. It is filling in really well and uses a fraction of the water the old lawn used.  Living in drought stricken California, it feels good knowing we are using a lot less water.

Hereford Cow

I am starting a new series of paintings in oils on canvas of farm animals all painted in black and white. Just finished the first one, a friendly and gentle looking hereford cow. This "Beautiful Bessie" is now available in my Etsy shop. This limited edition 30 X 40 inch gallery wrapped canvas print comes ready to hang.  The image wraps around the sides of the 1.25 inch deep wooden frame, adding dimension and interest from any viewing angle.  The canvas has a protective coating with UV light protection to prevent fading and cracking.  Orders ship via Fed Ex ground in 3 to 5 business days, usually sooner.  Click here for the link.  Next up, some chickens, horses and pigs!
