The simple things

Sometimes I try really hard to find you the most amazing feats of art ability that I forget to show you that the simplest of art forms can be really beautiful.  I found this image from the artist Robert Duncan and I wanted to share it with all of you.

First off it made me laugh since I have had several students who were in love with cows and I could totally picture them trying to ride one like the girl in this photo.  But then is also made me think of simpler times and lazy summer days.  But I want to know what you think?

What do you think of it?  Is it good art or bad art?  Does it bring back a memory for you or is it not worth your time to look at?

  1. I actually really like this piece of art! It makes me laugh because I'm sure that if you asked someone in our school if they've done this before, they'll say that they have.

  2. I love this picture. It looks so light-hearted and sweet. It looks so detailed and realistic. I like to paint this kind of stuff; nature and animals.

  4. I definitely like this piece, I can't paint that good, but it's not my favorite piece of art either. This reminds me of how my grandma told us stories of how when she was younger and was outside with her dad how he would sit her on a cow and work. It's not something I would spend a lot of time working on it though.

  5. This piece of art is really cool. It would be really hard to paint all the little details in. This would be fun to do something like this in class sometime.

  6. This is a really beautiful piece. It's simple, yet amazing. It shows that you don't need a lot of background to make it amazing.

  7. I like this one. It's pretty simple but it's still beautiful. It reminds me of when I lived on a farm and we had cows.

  8. I see how much fun that little girl is having. Because I know riding a cow is awesome and its so much fun. But that also is fake because no cow can be that clean unless it just got washed.

  9. This one feels so realistic, The girl looks really happy and the cows... Well I mean they look like cows. I also kinda feel like the cows faces are all turned forward because the artist didn't know how to do side profiles.

  10. I wish I could sit on a cow forever. That girl is soooo lucky Mrs. DeWitt! I can't even bro!

  11. I think that it does bring back memories of simple times this summer. People just sit around and hang out with people. It reminds me of all the times I hung out with friends this summer.

  12. Those cows look like they're about to drop the hottest mixtape of 2016. I wouldn't hang it up in my house but it is a really appealing piece of art. I have never rode a cow before; doesn't bring back any memories for me.

  13. The drawing of the man is the most realistic painting I have ever seen in my entire life. If you would see that just walking somewhere you would not believe that is a drawing.

  14. i like this piece of art because it brings me outside and it makes me calm. its not quite so clear but that is what makes it art i guess. you need to fill in the fine details by yourself.

  15. Those cows seem chill. They remind me of me and my friends cause we chill. Also those cows look like they aren't doing much. We don't do much either.

  16. This reminds me of my childhood. Cody and I had a cow that would let us ride her. The style is very simple but still elegant to make you feel something.

  18. I like it. My grandma used to have lots of cows and goats. I'm sure I did this at some point in my life. A lot of the times simpler things are better.

  21. This picture is oozing with those lazy, end of the day, summer vibes. It's full of good times and relaxing feelings. It's too bad I wasn't raised on a farm.

  46. It's a very nice and simple piece. At first look it's as if you'd see that everyday, but looking at it more you realize you don't often see a young child just sitting on a cow like it's normal.
