Illustration Friday: Jump!



Pin It
This week's subject for Illustration Friday is 'Jump'.
In Dutch, the translation for "Jump" is "Spring", the same as the season.
For me, spring has not begun until the cows are back in the meadows, after they've stayed indoors all winter long.

The sheer joy, like little kids in a playground, of these massive animals is very inspirational and you can't help but smile when you witness the cows do their dance..


"Spring!", 15x40cm (5.9x15.7) oil on panel

Hoi Erik! Geweldig. Een betere interpretatie was niet mogelijk. Ik moet altijd vreselijk lachen als ik de koeien het land in zie gaan voor de eerste keer! Daar word ik altijd vrolijk van net als van jou schilderij! Klasse!

Erik van Elven said...

Dank je wel Renate, het is een prachtig gezicht inderdaad, erg leuk om te zien.

I haven't been around cows much but from what I can tell, it is rather rare to see them running! Wonderful style, and it's so great to see them frolicking.

Erik van Elven said...

Thank you Cindy! Indeed it's rare to see them like this, usually they are very calm.
