..Until the Cows Come Home

Today's painting was inspired by this silly little video I saw today where the cows jump for joy at freedom, or are stretching their muscles upon release. See the video here. This image of cows racing out of the workplace came to my head. Sometimes we just have those days......

Smart Fish

Are fish smart? What do you think? Let's research it! I am reading a book called "Eating Animals" by Jonathan Safran Foyer, I am not that far into it but it is about, well.....eating animals. I just got to the part where it talks about how fish may actually be smart. It is said that fish may have the mental capacities of non-human primates. What can you find out? Comment below to share your findings! Here are some fish playing chess. Enjoy!
