Colorful Highland Cow

Piece description from the artist

This highland cow was one of the very first wildlife pieces that I created. Highland cows have incredibly detailed and colorful coats so I had a lot of fun integrating a variety of colors and textures onto this spectacular animal!

Admittedly, I had one issue with my highland cow. One of the characteristics of highlands that make them extra unique is that they have "bangs" that often cover their eyes. While I wanted to showcase the silly hairdo of the average highland, I also thought it was important to showcase his personality via his eyes as well.

Thus, my highland has a few stray "brows" covering his eyes. Like many of my pieces, this also has a hidden home-blessing within. Can you find it?
