One afternoon in May of 2009, Chester and I went for a four-wheeler ride to take reference pictures for a painting I needed to complete for my college summer painting class. We came across some cows near the fence along Newkirk Station Road that belonged to our friend, Ben Wilson. While all the other cows walked away, #601 stayed and posed for me. I took many photographs of her and completed my college assignment, ”Wilson’s #601” .That painting has become a favorite and I was interested in doing more painting of her. This painting is the second I finished in the series.
