A new herd for The Eatery

A new herd for The Eatery

  • Since selling my last pair of bulls to a buyer in Cape Town, the walls at The Eatery have been somewhat bare. Paintings of cattle in a setting that serves beef seems appropriate, so I’ve been working on more. The next pair of bulls are Angus rather than Nguni.

Here they are drying:

This is the red bull in progress:

 

 

and the black bull:

 

Inspired by The Bride Price, I also painted a larger version of the white Nguni cow:

 

All three are destined for The Eatery, and possibly a fourth. I have a half-complete Nguni bull I’m not quite happy with. I may repaint him from scratch, or fix him up. But soon there will be a herd of cattle for diners to enjoy.
