Cows and fizz - a good combination

Some of my cows have gone on a trip to a vineyard - Furleigh Estate near Bridport, to be exact. It is in the middle of nowhere but when you arrive through the fleeing sheep on their farm, a luscious vineyard, nestling in a sheltered valley in Dorset, awaits you.

I painted these cows especially on a grapey coloured background so they would feel at home in the old dairy which is now a tasting room. What a taste it is too - I tried the sparkling wine (from the new champagne region of Dorset?) and it was delicious.

So cow painting this month has had it's perks..... Roll on October - maybe a chocolate factory next.... in my dreams.

Cow paintings to appear on cows on canvas shortly.
