~ Antique Cow Oil Paintings ~

Hello, I hope you all had a good weekend and also a good day shopping the flea markets or garage sales and tag sales. It was a hot one today and now I am rushing to put this post up today before I go to work. I'm going to join on on the fun for ~Vintage Thingie Thursday~ hosted by Suzanne over at ~ Colorado Lady ~ We picked up these two oil paintings of cows they are on canvas and are most likely from 1880-1910 if not earlier. They might be European but not quite sure. As some of you might know we collect animal oil paintings. On some of the older post still have them on display.
I like these cows just relaxing on the cool green grass while the others are drinking water.

But this is my favorite of the two because it show the cliffs near the ocean and the Herder herding the cows back to the barn. We had found the two of them at an estate sale in Redlands Ca. my hometown. I do hope you enjoy the painting's and please visit the other participant's. Have a good day and Thank You for stopping by today....Julian

  12. Hi Julian,
    Happy Wednesday to you! I have to say I am sucker for animal oil paintings too. I have one of rabbits and a few of roosters, but I would love a cow one too. I just love the rustic French look and the cows paintings you have are just perfect. I am sure they are treasured by you. They are just lovely.
    I have to tell you I just LOVE the picture of Missy, Tallulah, and the Little One. It is just priceless. How did they all stay so still for that picture??? I can't get my two to perform :)
    I hope you are having a great day. Thanks for stopping by!!
