Life is Good, 16x20 original oil painting of hereford cows


I was going to call this painting "Mrs. Brown, You Have a Lovely Daughter." My husband nixed that idea because the song (sung by Herman's Hermits) is 40 years old, and most people won't know about it or remember it unless they listen to "oldies" radio.


Let me know if you like (and are old enough to remember) the Mrs. Brown title. For purchase information, please see my website, www.carolnelsonfineart.com

I like the title, and yes, unfortunately I am old enough to remember the song! I like the painting too! Even if a person doesn't know the song the title still works.

Thanks, Lori. We can always say we're too young to remember the song, but we heard it on an oldies station. ha

Yes, I remember the song. But i like the title you chose. It fits the way the cow and calf are looking at the viewer. You captured it.

Thanks, Wanda. It's a funny thing about titles. Sometimes the title is so perfect, it clarifies what the artist was trying to "say," and makes the painting more meaningful.

Yes, I am old enough to remember that title and I would have named it that had I thought of it. What do husband's know?? I do love your poppies and I too am attracted to geometric design. That's why quilting appealed to me but paintings are easier to store than quilts. Enjoy your work Carol. Cindy (C2)

Yes, I am old enough to remember that title. It would have been a cute title whether anyone knew about that song or not. I too am attracted to geomatric design that is why quilting appealed to me. But paintings are easy to store than quilts. Enjoy your work Carol. Cindy (C2)

Love the title "Mrs. Brown..." I do remember it which means I'm old enough! Interesting that you are attracted to geometric design, I am as well, which is why I quilt. But...paintings are easier to store than quilts. Love your work Carol. Cindy (C2) www.gotyme4u.blogspot.com

I thought it was "...you've got a lovely daughter."?

I like the blue shadows on the cow's face.
