I love cow faces! And when they're coupled with the little cowbirds that attend them, I can't resist sharing the story. The red collar on this girl, though, really clinched it for me.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Jan

Jan’s lifelong passion for animals and art have collided in the images she paints. Her Western subject matter is executed with an impressionistic realism, generally using a limited color palette. Jan captures the essence of her subjects in the details, whether it be the playful visage of a cow or the delicate feathers of a colorful bird. Her paintings embody a genuinely jovial exuberance. Often working on two pieces simultaneously, Jan paints from a small studio in her home in Idaho, where she also enjoys spending time with her teenage children.
