Has the Art world now officially gone as a Mad as a Milk Maid?

UK Artist Caroline Shotton has taken the bold step in repainting in her own ‘Milky Way’ some the ‘Great Masters’ in history and putting them in Cow form. These Limited Edition prints are ‘Moovelous’!

I personally love these and find them a very confident statement on Caroline Shotton’s part. Some really great painting, not to mention creativity, went into these pieces. You really have to these pieces in the flesh to appreciate them fully. Everyone who has seen them has commented how the pictures have grown on them and how their favourite of the 6 keeps changing.

The frames on the 4 framed pieces are about 4” wide but are light in colour and give the pieces both a modern and contemporary feel at the same time. The other 2 are Box Canvases, the style Caroline has made all her own in recent years.

thank you
