This piece started with the little calf getting up. The rest of the image was composed around the baby. I like the cow that is resting and had been wanting to do her for awhile so this all came together after I decided who the momma would be. The wood is spalted maple and that dark line wandering thru the middle always made me think of a trail or stream, Momma is urging the calf to get up, maybe to go for water or maybe to hit the trail.
