“Louise” is encaustic on wood panel (16″H x 12″W x 1.5″D).
“Louise” was created for the South Texas Art League Annual Juried Exhibit at the Art Museum of South Texas. After a photo shoot of our two heifers, Thelma and Louise, it was determined that Louise was the more photogenic cow. The exhibit at the Art Museum of South Texas coincided with the 50th Anniversary of their Singer Building. I drew my inspiration from the Museum’s main exhibit, “Warhol, Johns, and Stella: Revisted” and use Andy Warhol’s cows as inspiration for this new piece.
