A Book Cover

 
"King of the Batchelor Herd"
8.5" x 7"
 
 A friend from the gym where I work out asked me to take a commission for the cover of a book about working in Silicon Valley. She is in a field that is largely dominated by males and has many interesting experiences to tell. I won't say more as it's really Vicky's story to tell. Suffice it say, I never expected to paint a water buffalo and he was a challenge. I liked the results.

I always like the way these horns flow over and out from the head. Nice job, Mary!
