Inspiration behind this painting:-
On a Sunday drive around the Cornish Coast, I spotted a herd of curious Jersey Cows peering over a fence. I just had to pull over! They padded cautiously towards me. It was almost as though they were talking amongst themselves! I imagined them saying "What d'you reckon Hilda? Should we go over?" Warily they came, one by one.
I talked to calm them, to gain their confidence. I noticed how the sun altered the colour of their fur to a myriad of pinks and camels. Like live teddy bears they stood, calmly curious, waiting for my next move. I've never realised how huge their eyes are! Simply beautiful.
