Nothing brightens a winter day like finishing a painting of a flashy Longhorn heifer. The added bonus is how well her name, Chex My Girl, works as the title.

This handsome animal dwells at the Fey Longhorn Ranch, in the Willamette Valley.

Chex My Girl is an original watercolor, 29″ x 31″, and it will be included with my body of work for the Gorge Artist Open Studios Tour on April 20-22.

I plan to paint more cattle as the year progresses. Watch for future posts!
