Description As an art teacher I feel it is good for me to work as my students work so I can be an example to them. This particular assignment was to do a drawing of a cow and put watercolor to it. This is my version. Watercolor is one of the most fun mediums to use if you learn to control it. I've always been fascinated with animals since I grew up on a farm in the back woods and so this is right up my alley. Growing up, I had a cow named Suzy and she looked a lot like this one.
Penny Pausch, Jonesboro Member Since February 2012 Artist Statement I grew up way back in the hills of Missouri (U.S.). I was a country girl and loved every moment of it. My sister and I did not have many toys and so we played outside on trees and other things in the woods and learned to use our imagination. This has become an asset to me. I knew by the 5th grade that I wanted to be an artist more than anything else. I like to paint, sew, minipulate objects so that they are interesting, cook, and write poetry. One of my goals is to write a poetry book and illustrate it. I recently have gone back to college after 17 years of raising my children.
