Artwork: Swiss Cow

Lots of delightful summer company and a productive garden have kept my knitting needles in their basket. My art supplies have been tucked away, too.

Late last week, however,  I took the time to sketch and paint a small cow figure that Ed and I purchased in the airport as we were leaving Zurich.

Carved from wood using a flat carving method, the cow translated quite nicely into a pen and ink sketch with watercolor. I added a bit of funk with a checkerboard border, and, I see now, that I left out the tiny Swiss cowbell that rings a soft reminder of the mountain cows that we saw in Switzerland in May.
