Moory Christmas – 4.5″ x 6.5″ Watercolor & Ink

I know!  They don’t even look like cows.  Maybe it’s the sheepish grins I gave them.  😀

I painted this from a photo supplied by ScattyKat at WetCanvas.  They are french cows, but they really weren’t wearing hats or boots.  There were no signs of Christmas in the photo.  All of that is pure Bethville weirdness.

About Raymond Charles Barker

Raymond Charles Barker was an influential American minister and author in the mid-twentieth century. He wrote such books as The Power of Decision and Treat Yourself to Life, on ways to change subconscious patterns. He became president of the International New Thought Alliance in 1943, a group practicing the religious philosophy developed in the late 1800’s by Phineas Quimby, with early proponents including Ralph Waldo Emerson. Unity Church and Divine Science are among its later offshoots. He founded the First Church of Religious Science in Manhattan in 1946 and served as its minister until 1979. He died in 1988 at the age of 77.

    Lovely, Beth. I love all cows.
    This is actually the first time ever I’m coming across Christmas cows. They look cute and happy. May all farm-animals have a wonderful Christmas.
    Wishing you a Happy Christmas and Happy Holidays too!
