Calf's Kin

These are two little step-brothers who were born on our ranch outside Brenham, TX. They have the same daddy but different mommies. They were sticking pretty close to each other so they ended up in a painting together. They are very happy calves because, as the Blue Bell ice cream commercial will tell you, the cows think Brenham is heaven.
The title Calf's Kin is a play on the familiar "calfskin," which is the soft leather made from... not them, but maybe their cousins on the next ranch over.
This painting was juried into Randy Higbee's first 6"Squared show in California, along with the billy goats Gruff from yesterday. And they also, thanks to Mr Higbee, are nicely framed.
