" COWSABLANCA "

I am part of a group called  " Artisans by the sea  " We participated in the COW PARADE .    We painted this lovely girl to join many others and are displayed throughout La Jolla here in San Diego and at the end of the exhibition will be auctioned off to benefit the 
.


So I went to find my cow and  lo & behold there she was on the corner of Prospect & Ivanhoe.  She is one of the prettiest I think but I'm partial, you know how it is with our children 
ha! ha!

Go to their website there is a lot of other entries.

How lovely your cow is, and what a mooooving and meaningful benefit you've participated in, Dominique!

Desiree said...

Now that will look interesting in your resume! Excels in painting livestock! LOL What kind of paint idd you use on fiber glass? Great job, we did something similar here in Riverside, they commissioned artist to paint oranges and they were purchased by local business's and put in front of the stores. They had "orange" tours and everything. Great fun!

EPTAS, It has help me appreciated my steak ! It was fun

Desiree, Acrylics with a poly over to protect . The gold utters were the most interesting to paint to match the gold horns.

Angela Elledge said...

Oh, Dominique you know how wild I am about cows; she is moolicious! I am off to the website to see more. I'm so glad you had this opportunity---how fun!

dominique eichi said...

What fun! Your cow is wonderful, Dominique. Love the gold horns, too. We had Pandas and then "party animals" (donkeys and elephants of course) in D.C. Great way to have public art and raise money.

dominique eichi said...

L.Holm, That's so funny having painted fiberglass animals and fruits throughout the cities everywhere.
I came back from Switzerland a few weeks ago and saw a painted cow there too. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Dominique, this is cool! and looks like you all had a blast! We do Fish here in Richmond. Sure does liven things up in and around the city.
I love your enthusiasm about all things art.:-))

dominique eichi said...

R, thanks .....check with the city arts department.

Alice Thompson said...

Dominique, Where do I begin...
I love that self portrait you did at the salon. Those note cards that you call "Doodles" are exquisite examples of fine art. I can't believe you went to Europe already... and visited Adebanji too! I bet you had something to do with the flowing paisley design on this lovely cow. I'm glad to see you being such a positive influence in so many blogs.

dominique eichi said...

Alice, Your insightful comments were missed by all .
I hope you can stay and grace us with more of your work. Yes I had a little adventure in Europe while you were gone and my time with Adebanji was one of the highlights. Thank you for checking up on my old stuff. Do you know you are in a few paintings. One that comes to my mind right now Is Vern's his big one. Anyway, WELCOME BACK

adebanji said...

You two again, always love to see ya both! Great work, nice to see some of your variations!!!

dominique eichi said...

Adebanji, Thanks , Tiffany says Hi

Vern Schwarz said...

Dominique, I didn't know you were a cowgirl...ha! Great job.

dominique eichi said...

Vern, I'm not a wrangle but I do ride. But cow can be so sweet, I think mine is sweet. No cleaning after her.

Hi Dominique, I saw your post on sketch crawlers and thought I would come check out your blog..
Cow parade I will come see for sure. I entered into that but did not get selected. Doing a group thing though did not cross my mind. Good idea!!I am now a follower of you, perhaps you will follow me and some day hopefully we will meet at a crawl, happy creating!!
