My son has asked for a sheep painting, so I'm playing around with designs. This is one workup, but I don't think it'll make the final cut. I do like the two fluffy sheep in the front, facing us. I just think it might have too few sheep, or maybe I'll do it in more sepia colors, or find a photo with more clusters of the sheep. It's a difficult format - 3 times as wide as high... I actually like it better if you put your finger in the middle and make it two paintings!
Yesterday my daughter ran the Boston Marathon again - so proud of her! When we saw her, at a little past the halfway point, she was smiling while running - the complete opposite of what I would be doing (crying) at that point.
