After the rain

After a long period of drought we were finally blessed with an abundance of rain. This of course caused the landscape to change colour as new growth sprouted from the ground, little flowers popped up everywhere and everything looked so fresh and new.

While driving around the countryside my father and I came across a dairy farm where little yellow flowers turned the lands into a yellow carpet.

I just have to share this photo with you, this was one of the photographs taken that day.  The farmer told us that some of his Jersey cows provide 40 litres of milk per day.  Isn't she beautiful?

  1. You've certainly captured that fresh feel with your painting...and I particularly like the water reflections. Sounds like it was a really nice day out, you're right the jersey cow is beautiful and looking very important.

  2. Lovely little painting Vanessa. You have captured the scene well.

    I love the cow, her gaze is so intent, standing there in that mass of yellow blooms. You must paint her!

  3. Thank you Ann and Carol for the lovely comments. I think I might just have to paint that cow Ann, she does beg to be painted.


Thank you for stopping by. Your comments are always most welcome.
