Lorena Masferrer: Moo, Bro
Acrylic on canvas
48” x 48”
I had never seen a longhorn before moving to Austin about 10 years ago. It was love at 1st sight- Everything about these gorgeous bovines melted my heart! As soon as I stumbled upon this photo, this face, those eyes, I knew I had to paint him big and in an unexpected setting.
“Moo, Bro” brought happiness into the room, even before he was completed. And even naming him gave my family and I many good laughs too!
Longhorns will continue to appear in my artwork since they are pure joy to capture!
