Mata Hairy by Liz Quebe
This is a framed original oil painting by Liz Quebe of Rochester, Minnesota.
Liz has loved drawing since she was a child and went on to major in fine art at the University of Colorado. However, her career in marketing and communications took her away from painting. When she retired and moved to Soldiers Grove from Chicago in 2002, Liz picked up a brush for the first time in 35 years.
Her latest interest is painting animals, especially cows. Living in an area with small family dairy farms, subjects are not hard to find. Her husband is the photographer and she uses his images as the basis for her paintings. "I strive to capture not only the likeness of the animal, but a little personality too."
Liz is fortunate to be married to a talented woodworker. Her husband Jerry crafts many of the natural wood frames that set off her paintings.
