Stephenville, Texas - Moolah the Cow


I found this girl hanging out in downtown Stephenville, Texas and just had to paint her. Below you'll find a close-up of the cow. There's a sign hanging on the front that states her name is "Moolah the Cow". The big sign also states "Erath County. No. 1 Dairy County in Texas." I didn't include any of the lettering simply because when I do lettering it looks like a kindergartener's work. ;)

Hi Ed. Thanks. I was virtually wandering around Texas, and found a cow. Imagine my surprise. ;)

Hello Bill - Beautiful work here; I especially love this one. I think I jumped over from Wet Canvas and I'm so glad I did. I've added myself as a follower, so I'll be back for sure.

This is a great concept of using google street finder and painting each state. I'm originally from SW Louisiana, so I'll be watching to see what you portray from the great south!

Hi Angela. Thanks for stopping by. I've done a few of the southern states, but got a few more to go.

Someone sent me the link for your blog and I was perusing through it. Stephenville is my home town! How wonderful! And how hilarious. :)

Hi Ann. Glad you like Moolah. I couldn't believe my luck when I walked up to the cow in Street View. Just had to paint her.

My grandma (who passed last May) lived in Stephenville. We visited in April and it brought back many memories of the summers I spent their as a child. Love your Cow painting! It too brings back memories of my sweet Grandma Jolly!
