Devon Cattle Painting from France Gallery

Best Buddies

My newest painting, done in soft pastel, on thick museum grade pastel paper, shows two steers of the Milking Devon Breed of Heritage Cattle.  This was a very early breed of cattle to arrive here, as early as 1623.  This breed was known for their "speed, intelligence, strength, willingness to work" as draft animals for the early colonists, in the U.S.  The two steers that I used as the models for this painting, live an good life at a Farm Museum here in the Midwest.
