She Cows

My friend Alyssa Sherwood is a Pasadena artist who blogs at Movingarden. She’s been painting She Cows lately, and posting them on her blog and on Flickr. I especially love the animation she posted yesterday looping through the cows she’s painted so far.

There was a large performance space with lots of cozy little tables, and there were separate bar, pool and patio areas where you could hear the music and watch it on screen, but where you could also move around and socialize more or enjoy a little more privacy.
