I’ve lately been MIA while teaching and working like mad to get the studio ready for an event this weekend….PLUS, I finally had my version of WordPress updated after 4 years and trying to figure out the new bells and whistles. OK, the truth is I didn’t WANT to have to figure it out so have been avoiding it. I can see that they’ve made some improvements, but it seems a lot more complicated. Maybe it’s just my overloaded, befuddled brain….Meanwhile, our local IDAL painting chapter Artisans by the Sea has taken up cow painting (not to be confused with cow tipping). You see, they are participating in a Cow Parade, the world’s largest public art project.
My friend and fellow Morocco traveler, Vicki Shultz, designed the cow based on a, ta da, Moroccan theme. Cowsablanca. Get it? . She’s been guiding some of the women in the group to get the cow ready for it’s big debut. They used some of our new Moroccan Modello patterns for the patchwork pattern, so I stopped by to see how it was going and admire all the other cow cuties…..
LOVE the matador cow!
and this pretty face…
the “tribal” cow…
these colorful snouts….
and these hot legs. I’m waiting for the final photos of the Cowsablanca cow with her “jewelry” on to post that. The Moroccan-inspired Modellos that were used are available here on the Modello Designs website. The mylar stencil versions are now available at Royal Design Studio. Cow not included.
