I have a whimsical love affair with cows. There was a small herd during my trip to Ireland who posed for me for a long time. Quietly chewing and watching me as I sketched them. It was a halcyon moment of artistic connection with my subject.
Melvin was one of the herd. He had a little more intense visage than the rest of them - more serious in his contemplation of me. Perhaps he was creating his own artistic version of me in his mind?
