I know the plural for sheep is not sheeps. I took this photo in Italy at a sheep farm and our gracious hosts referred to them as sheeps. Maybe even sheepsah. We got to taste several of the sheep's tasty products. Yum! I was super excited to get to photograph some sheep. The sheep were running in a flock so I had to edit out lots of sheep behind these three. This is painted on an 8 x 10 linen canvas.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I was fortunate to have three sons in one place at one time.sold
These sheeps are wonderful. I love the quiet pastoral feeling!ReplyDelete
I love your sheeps and that is what we call them too! The brushwork is fabulous and love the fence line at the back. Three is just perfect- one for each son~! So glad you had them all together and enjoyed the holiday!ReplyDelete
"Sheeps" caught my attention for sure, but I like it, as well as the painting. Great background that really makes the "sheeps" stand out.ReplyDelete
Love, love, love the gestures of the sheeps you've created with simple brushstrokes. I found your blog through Karin's mention and glad I did. Beauthiful work.ReplyDelete
