Sometimes I see something that screams out, “Paint me!” This was one of those times. This image cracks me up! As I painted this, I thought about all the Hebridean sheep I encountered on my trip to Scotland. I was told by a crofter that “sheep are crazy! Every day they wake up trying to find a new way to kill themselves.” The sheep in the painting seem to be mocking the shepherd as he calls them home.
I am currently working on a series of ‘Aspen Moods’. It is enjoyable work, as I love aspens but it is tedious work. These pieces allowed me lots of time to ponder the wonder of aspens.
I am also enjoying painting pictures of family and friends!
