A Ewe and her two babies, A mother sheep and her two lambs

Mother Ewe and her two baby Lambs
This is a painting I finished very recently.  I created it from photos kindly lent to me by a sheep and goat farmer who lives near me.  I'm not mentioning her name because I didn't ask for permission.  But I do thank her.

I've finally started doing many of my paintings in oil.  I love how it flows, but I'm still having a problem with messing areas I've already painted because it dries much more slowly than acrylic paints do.  I think, too, that the colors are more true after the painting has dried.

I'm Alive

Sorry for no posts recently (well, in quite a few months!), but I've been really busy and haven't taken the time to post any of my most recent paintings.  And I admit that I don't produce them as quickly as I was for a while because I've been doing a lot of work, too, in my clay studio.

Getting older and older every day but just cannot even bear the idea of slowing down.  As I've always told my family, I hope that when I do drop someday, I want to be standing at my easel, brush in hand.  What a wonderful life, that of an artist!
