I finished painting the dining room walls white a few nights ago, so I headed out yesterday to look for colorful art to hang on them and found the above cow painting. Bugs had crawled inside the frame and even had the nerve to die right there between the glass and the mat in plain sight. Ew. But I was curious about the artist, so I did a quick Google search that revealed a promising lead. So I shot off a quick e-mail and in (literally) 2 minutes got this response:
That, indeed, is my painting. It is acrylic on paper.
How fun this is for me! I wonder how it got to an antique store in Birmingham.
My name is Louise Bourne. Here's my website, which is maybe how you found me: www.louisebourne.com
There, you will find a current resume and work, including recent cow paintings!
I live in Maine, where your new acquisition was painted. May you enjoy it.
