Title: Flossie The Floral Blue Cow
Location: Prairie Village Shops, KS
Artist: Janice C. Atkins
Sponsor: Prairie Village Shops

Flossie, the Floral Blue Cow has a blue background with a design made up of flowers in the center. According to the artist, “The flowers represent the weeks found on the turf of a pasture where cows graze. At both sides of the flowers are borders with a white background, with a design made up of pink ice cream cones and brown fudge bars. The colors of the ice cream and background represent chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, the three most common flavors of ice cream. I thought ice cream would be appropriate for a cow theme. My message is straightforward, cows are a beautiful, useful, and important animals.”

Janice Atkins and has been a long-time member of the Kansas City Artists’ Coalition.

This cow was sold in the internet auction hosted by that began on October 5, 2001, immediately following the close of the live auction and ran for approximately three weeks.
