Happy Divorsary

November 6 is the anniversary of my divorce, or as I like to call it, my divorsary.  On that day in 2009, a judge in the South Gauteng High Court struck his gavel and ended my marriage. In a very good sign, I nearly forgot all about it until yesterday.

As a present to myself ahead of the big day, I decided to paint a crazy cow. That’s what a friend called me – with good reason – on Sunday night and I had to laugh. She’s right: I am a crazy cow.

Here’s the cow in progress:


And you know what?  Here’s to embracing colour. Here’s to doing mad things that others wouldn’t approve of. Here’s to being inappropriate and loud. Here’s to life. Here’s to joy.

Here’s to having good stories to tell.

Here’s to being a crazy cow.

  1. I know meaning is in the eye of the beholder, but that crazy cow looks happy to me.
    Congratulations on the divosary. You are a strong brave woman.

  2. Sarah, your cow is DIVINE! There is so much energy and life in the colour you have used and even though cow stands still, life is happily happening with, too and around it. Love, Love, LOVE. Once again, I begin throwing my pennies in a jar to save for a SB original when I’m big. DAMN, I love this cow! 🙂

  3. I love the painting…I would love to put a set online…and have a set on a large wall I have in my lounge. You rock.
