Inspired by Miss Polly’s stunning texture work and images of this breed (Charolais), I searched out a ranch near my home. The McCullough Charolais Farm just north of Stillwater, Minnesota is the largest Charolais farm in MN, and Shane, the farm manager, was very helpful and gracious. I even got up right around sunrise to catch some good light!! (Unheard of in my world!!) As Polly showed us, these gentle, but curious creatures have the most interesting faces! I never thought I would do portraits of cows, but could not resist the sweetness expressed!
