Wow! I can't even remember the last cowbell I actually painted, I'm thinking it must have been last summer when I was on my annual art sabbatical up in Ely, Nevada. FYI-I just looked it up and since I started painting cowbells way back in 2015, I have sold a total of 141 bells. That my friends, is a lot of cowbells!
We have made a number of changes to the prepping of each bell and to the way that I paint them over that time and I think this new painted all over the bell design looks amazing. I want to make it difficult to decide just which side of the bell that you want to display.
I blogged yesterday about all the hydrangea and butterfly commission pieces that I have been doing in the past month or two and so it only seemed fitting that I would add that theme to a cowbell. Here is the first "Hydrangea and Monarch Butterfly" cowbell and I have 2 more to paint on my easel.
As you can see the design wraps around the whole bell and the bright orange of the butterflies just POP against all the purple and blue. I'm really excited about this one.
Here is the link to the listing on my Etsy Shop if you are interested in checking this out. They really do make and excellent gift. Hydrangea and Monarch Cowbell
