Birds are lovely, silly, and beautiful and represent so many things from spirituality to freedom. But mostly they are wonderful in themselves. I love to paint them and capture their community, their connection to the Earth. I hope that being around the paintings will have some of the soothing effect of being out in nature around the animals. As with cows and horses, I love to paint birds in groups, and to capture that sense of being part of a group and also an individual.

Why I Paint Birds
I have always loved the feeling of being around birds, but now that we live in South Dakota, on the edge of a college town, they are all over our house and yard every day.

South Dakota Horse Paintings
Horses are such gentle creatures out in the field. I love to paint them and capture their community, their softness. I hope that being around the paintings will have some of the soothing effect of being around the animals. I love to paint them in groups, and to capture that sense of being part of a group and also an individual.

Cow Paintings
I paint cows because I think they’re lovely and being around them makes me happy. I hope these cow paintings make you happy, too! Shop with confidence, and let me know if you have any questions. – paintings of the cows of South Dakota, Nebraska, and Washington state.

I have always loved the feeling of being around cows, but now that we live in South Dakota, on the edge of a college town, I see them every day. Our neighbors a few houses down have cows, and until this year when the development of the town has pushed the cows off the field I see from my studio, I could paint cows just looking out my studio window. Now I need to go a couple miles down the road to find a lovely herd, but they’re still close enough to feel like neighbors.

I love how cows relate to each other out on the prairie. There is a sweetness to them that anyone who has spent time with cows remembers fondly. They have a beautiful grace. As you can see, I love painting cows.

Here you’ll find paintings of black, red, white, and spotted cows – some are dairy cows, and some are beef cows. Some are on dirt, but most are out on the grassland either spreading out or grouped together. I love the way cows can form patterns out on the grasses, and enjoying the abstract quality of them.

This large cow farm painting has a lovely atmosphere. It depicts a South Dakota farm with cows enjoying a chilly morning.

Two of the paintings shown above (paintings of the cows on Nebraska); There are two paintings in this series. One is now in a public collection, and the other is available through a great gallery in Minneapolis, MN. 

Holstein, red angus, American Brahman, Brown Swiss, and in the future, American Longhorn.

About the Artist
Hi, I’m Jessie Rasche. I love animals. We have 2 dogs at home, both full of character. And the birds, cows and horses all around us bring me a lot of joy. When collectors have told me that my paintings bring that sort of joy and sweet feelings to their walls, I consider that the highest praise.
