Instead he paints her all over with very colorful flowers which come off in a rainstorm and Carolien is sad. She asks the painter to re-do her but instead he orders a small pottery cow and paints it exactly as he painted Carolien, then places it in his shop window for all passersby to admire. These folks order one for themselves and the floral Delft Cow story is now history.
