Wool on the hoof


Having never drawn or painted a sheep this was a fun challenge. Just finished reading Barbara Kingsolver book Flight Behavior , a wonderful read set on a sheep farm in the Appalachian mountains. The book is also about climate change and the monarch butterflies, further inspiration.......
For several art challenges.

Thanks for your comments, we are starting to see some new lambs on the local farms. I just finished a knitting program with Tweens and Mums so much fun!
