Queen Cow

Queen Cow

Oil on Linen Canvas
50 x40 cm

Her Majesty Cow - a Pop Art Portrait named after Queen Bitch by David Bowie which referred to Lou Reed, Andy Warhol, Factory and in a very round about way to the style of this painting - Pop Art. I tried to catch the oily shiny blackness of this cow's hide through strokes of blues, purples and other oil based colours one would see if oil was strewn across a surface, as in under a leaking car engine. I like these shiny coats of colour. I like this abstract or even fauvist feel to this portrait, makes it "alive" which is exaggerated by the white coloured twinkle of the eye as Queen Cow gives off an imperious look.
