I am having a cow… the joys and pains of painting

I recently started on a new piece. First of all, landscape painting is not my thing! Don’t know why? Maybe I am not interested enough? And I don’t want to do to fine details, so I tend to end up painting over it all. This work in progress is a good example of why I love painting: I hate the work right now! I don’t know how to proceed. It is a riddle, a mystery that MUST be solved. So I’ll just press on and keep painting when this has dried enough.

And the Pocket Art pieces I did for our Santa Fe neighbors looked like this when I gave the pieces to them.
