...No - I don't mean the type of blossom that there is an abundance of here at the moment, in this glorious spring time! As gorgeous as it is, I mean Blossom the cow and she is one of my Auntie Pam's best friends!
My Auntie asked if I wouldn't mind sketching her and I have just got around to doing it!
There are very few animals that I am scared of, but I admit to three things that I am TERRIFIED of:
- At number one it is the wasp! Just typing the word makes my fingertips break out in a sweat!
- At number two it's the camel. I was once KIDNAPPED by a Tunisian on a beach and FORCED to ride one! ... Well... okay... maybe not actually kidnapped... let's just say, heavily persuaded - but 'oh the trauma'!!!
- At number three it's the COW!!!
I was once chased across a field by an entire herd of cows! I must have looked like an out of control windmill with my arms and legs flying all over the place as I ran screaming hysterically towards the gate! I have never wanted to be anywhere near one since!
So, would I have chosen to draw a cow? Absolutely not!
But, anyway, here she is. Meet Blossom...

I am told that she is a very friendly cow.
In my son's words - 'This cow rocks!' So, with that in mind I found it easier to draw her, than I would have a normal, 'KILLER' cow :0)
My Auntie is thrilled with it and that makes me happy - happier than Blossom looks. I think the farmer took her boyfriend out to dinner at MacDonald's and he is VERY late home...
On the subject of the things I am frightened of - you MUST check out Suzanne Berrys blog. Aside from being an incredibly talented Artist - she has recently painted some wasps that look so incredibly real! Real enough that I felt my heartbeat race the moment I saw them! Eek!!!
