Cow safari

We’ve just had the most fabulous mini-break (Bridget Jones style) on Dartmoor (only we had kids and dogs in tow and no sports car…). It turned out to be a veritable cow safari. The amazing colours that we have had this Autumn helped to frame the cows in the glorious environment. Here are a few […]

Somerset Art Weeks

It’s the last weekend of Somerset Art Weeks and I’ve had a fabulous time meeting people in my new back garden studio. The weather has been kind and I have been beavering away in between chatting to customers ready for a new exhibition in Langport at the very lovely cafe, Art Tea Zen which is being […]

Bath and West 2016

It’s been a busy few weeks preparing for the Bath and West show. It was ten years ago that I exhibited there last time near the Village Green. This time I am inside Exmoor Hall with lots of lovely local Somerset traders. I am representing ACE arts, a new Somerton Gallery,  with Sally KentGlass. Ten years […]

Summer buzzin’

The studio is looking decidedly bare. Apart from my luxury dog bed/futon and her easel and a few boxes there is not much there.

Frankly, I was bored just after those ridiculous pigs had a race on the Channel 4 alternative coverage. David “Ham”eron – really?? So far this morning she, has got us into another scrape with cows chasing us, taken […]

Cow love

Just got back from our walk – more cows being photographed. They all couldn’t get enough of me – snorting at me through the fence – charming! Not sure why cows are so interested in the likes of me – obviously I am gorgeous, but when I go to play with them, they all run […]

cows in the fog

A foggy day

Well she’s finally got out her running shoes again after the winter. I guess that is because the muddy puddles have dried up in all the glorious sunshine. We had a great run through the fog up on the hills today. It was slightly scary when a thundering herd of cows came out of the […]

Rosie’s First Dog Blog

Hi! I’m Rosie. I’m the Cows on Canvas studio dog. We moved into a studio at Bowden’s Farm, Hambridge in the summer of 2014. My person, Jackie, paints cows, which frankly is a stupid thing to do as dogs are much better. However, some people seem to like them and actually buy them, so it […]
