Lisa Andreasen's journey to the Boston Cow Parade.

Opticow Illustion was auctioned on September 21, at the Gala Auction.
Jesse and I went into Boston the week before to do some onsite touch-ups so that she was all ready for the big event.
My parents and Grandparents also made a trip to Boston to see her. (Photo compliments of my dad)

More Visitors

When we were in Boston, we met Marco & Nazma. They ran out of battery power for their camera, so we took these pics together. Marco & Nazma, I hope you enjoyed yout trip to Boston! Thanks for visiting!

Party at the Common

We finally made it to Boston to visit Opticow Illusion. Kevin returned once again, bringing his wife, Sonciary, and Tom & Becca joined us all for a day on the town.

Visit from Kevin

I received an email with one of the best subject lines I have ever received: "I have met your cow." I guess you have to know Kevin, but I could just hear him say it. That was it, a subject line and an attached picture. Classic! Anyway... Visitor #2... Drumroll please...

Thanks Kevin!

1st Official Visitor-Meredith

Many people have visited Opticow in her new home, and she is never lonely. Meredith is the first who has shared her photos, and so she has earned the distinction of being Opticow Illusions first official visitor, and first official person added to the blog guestbook. She visited last weekend with her Fiancee, Paul. Thank you both for visiting and for sharing your pictures!

Keep the photos coming!

Opticow has finally settled in her new home. You can find her at the Boston Common until the beginning of September. A map and full listing of where each cow wil graze is posted at the link below. (hint: Opticow Illusion is #57) I hope you have a chance to see the Cows around Boston this summer.

Opticow would like to invite friends and family to visit and take your picture with her. Send me your photos and they might find their way to this blog. I will try to keep up with it as an online guestbook.

1000th Visitor

Opticow received her 1000th blog visit tonight around 11:30. Thank you all for visiting. I hope you enjoy the Boston Cow Parade!

Out to Pasteur

As of tomorrow... June 3, the cows are finally out to pasteur, and the Boston Cow Parade officially begins. Much buzz still surrounds Opticow, including another article, this time published in the Manchester Mirror. For those of you who have been asking, I still do not know where Opticow will be grazing, and I'm anxious to know as well. We saw many of the finished designs at a reception held for artists and sponsors, and it was amazing to see them all together.

Jesse and I will be spending several weeks doing mission work in Namibia Africa, and will probably not make it to Boston until after we get back. If you go to the Parade before we do, let us know what you think... and where Opticow's new home is.
