A full moon weaves magic on a cold winter's eve.
It's there to be shared by those who believe.
Alone at the farm on a night of this sort.
I thought I heard whispers, a giggle, a snort!
I crept toward the cowshed, so quiet and smug.
I witnessed these milkmaids, tipping the jug.
The secrets they spilled were shocking delights,
As they basked in the glow of the moonshine that night.
This charming portrait depticts five Holsteins partaking in winter evening's pleasures.The farm where this took place is about a mile from my home. When I was driving around the countryside, looking for neat things to paint, I passed these cows. The moon was giving them an extraordinary aura, and I really felt like I was witnessing something secret and special. That's the feeling I wanted to keep when I rushed to my studio to communicate the experience. - BM
