cows, canvas & sweet melissa

mg fall jw 317

good morning friends!

i want to introduce you to sweet melissa.

yes, this is a cow. not a bull. and yes there are many breeds of cattle that have horns. how does this city girl know these things? well i have one word for you. google.

i loved her from the moment we saw her. we were driving home from our holy week at seaside. i had put the fam on “cows in a field near the road” alert, while i napped of course. sure ‘nuf, in the middle of nowhere alabama maybe? , madison sees exactly what i was looking for. sweet dan turns around. ( mind you. if you ever drive home on a saturday, on a two lane road, with everybody else & their brother also driving home, you recognize this can be quite a feat).

well sweet melissa ( who i’ve affectionately named after one of my favorite allman brothers tunes) didn’t pay us too much attention. she then pokes her horned head through the barbed wire fence to nab the best of the best grass. atta girl melissa. persistence in the face of obstacles, my kinda girl.

i was about as excited to get home & upload 1,200 beach pics as i was to upload these.

since i love her so much i thought you might as well.


so……..after much behind the scenes thought, prayer & sorting through a small file of my images that i’ve kept for such a time as this, i’m going to offer canvas wraps. each one is professionally crafted & will ship to your home within 3-4 days of order. 1 1/4″ depth. black backer board for a clean finish & hanging hardware already installed. your canvas is fade resistant & finished with a scratch resistant layer.

Dana - oh Sweet Melissa! what a precious girl and a beautiful canvas! Definitely going on my Christmas wish list! While shopping in Seaside last spring, I came across a beautiful Cow Painting with which I absolutely fell in love. The only problem was that it was “several” hundred dollars over my budget! Ever since then I have been on the look out for a sweet Cow picture to bring home! Your canvas’ are gorgeous!
