When our friend, Alicia, came for her annual holiday at the beach during August she did a lot of tipping of this paper mache cow sculpture while giving it a new coat of many colors and patterns.
I had given Alicia several pieces of scrap muslin for cleaning brushes and wiping up paint. Those treasured paint rags hanging to dry on the clothesline will find places in my future creations.
We got the idea for this project while Lee and I were visiting her in Milwaukee. She had taken us to see a painted cow at an upscale art/craft shop. We were tempted to buy that very expensive piece until we recalled that we already had a very nice, but rather plain spotted cow sculpture at the cottage. Our thanks to Alicia for volunteering her talent to turn our cow into a "funky art" piece.
