Oil 9 x 12
I used to be terrified of sheep and goats when I was little.
We had visited a farm, and being the ever-inquisitive child that
I was, I wandered into a barn all by myself. All I remember
is that it was dimly lit, and all of these strange-eyed animals
were staring at me. The next thing I remember is that I had been
knocked onto my backside by an overly aggressive billy goat!
I did not want to be around sheep or goats for quite some time.
I wanted to paint this wooly sheep when Gary Keimig posted it
for his Wilderness Challenge, but I never got to do it before
the challenge ended. I liked the quiet spirit of this sheep, as
well as its beautifully textured coat - which was also full of color.
Thank goodness I appreciate sheep and goats now, and am
no longer afraid of them!!
