The first thing I did was put the body on the canvas without the back end up. I got the artist to cut out the back end and make the cow stand up. The artist was able to do that because they did not need the back end up. When I put the cow body on I was going to cut around the top of the back of the body, so it would hang down.
I then painted the body completely, then painted the rest of the cow all over with a brush so it would stand up. As it lay on the canvas the painter painted a lot of cows around the cow body.
How did you choose the cow? What was your criteria?
The artist has a horse head, but there was not one real cow head. We could not find one. We found three or four real cow heads, and this is when we were finally able to find some actual real cow heads.
After I did that, I went on to say, “Do not worry what you find, just go ahead and do it this the next day, and then we will have a cow.” The artist said, “Okay, if you think the cow is going to make me happy, you can do it.” So he got the cow and cut the back of the cow all over and made himself a cow.
Did you have any advice for other artists?
I wish I could give you advice, but I’m not sure I can. I had an experience in college where I was able to do the same thing. The artist said, “You may have to get rid of that cow, it looks too good.” Because you don’t want to make the guy happy, so you want to hide the cow. I found myself in that situation. I don’t know how to really explain it, maybe you’ve heard it or you’ve seen it. I don’t know. It was the best lesson I ever learned.
What’s your favorite cow painting? Why?
I find the image of an older male being very sexy. He has this big big smile. My wife often says she loves to dance around with him, but I love just being in the middle of the room.
Why is it a big deal that the work was banned in China?
If there was a war and there was war, wouldn’t the people who did that work kill one another? And that has always seemed to me a bit strange. So that is a big
