Today, two of the plein air painting groups I belong to were gathering to paint in gardens; one in Riverside and one in Huntington Beach. I couldn't decide which one to join, because they were both a drive for me and I was late in getting started. I finally decided to "stay home" and paint at the dairy that has supplied my family with the best milk in the valley for years-"DeJongs." The dairy was very accomodating, and the cows presented a great value study! (for the most part they ignored me, after a brief show of interest) This 11"h by 14"w plein air in oil shows them at work at their feeding trough. They cooperated by staying relatively still for a while, then in a moment, I looked up and they were gone!
