Graze Restaurant asked me to paint a cow for them. Here’s the progression (click any cow to enlarge), most recent progress at top.
If you want to read this from the beginning, starting with the delivery of the cow, just start reading at the bottom of this post and scroll up….
Done! Finished varnishing last week. Whew!
Wanted to get this uploaded before 2013, so here you go:
Pretty much done…
What a nightmare this has been. Should be easy-squeezy, but with the other deadlines in October/November…. Oh well. Working away on side two now–getting there! Here’s side one, pretty much finished (below):
Final (Side One) State of Wisconsin with products
Side One almost done
Adding texture to the horns

Some info from an earlier post:
Graze restaurant has commissioned me to paint a cow for their patio.
The design will be a holstein (modeled after one of the dairy cows milked at Sassy Cow Creamery, where Graze gets much of their dairy products). Incorporated onto the black/white holstein pattern, will be painted the specific, locally sourced products–produce, Highland beef, trout, etc (that Graze buys from local farmers in the area)–from which Executive Chef Tory Miller and the Graze team create the dishes on their menu.
It just arrived today…
Yep, it’s a girl!
