Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Gathering Wool'
Oil on linen archival panel
8 x 10

This has been one of those days that when I got up and
got ready for my day, the rest of the day was decided
as soon as I sat down at my easel.  Although it's not really great
when it comes to getting the housework done, it's a day
that fills my heart and soul with such joy - I am so lucky to be
able to follow my passion.  Those dustballs will still be there tomorrow!

I created this painting to submit to Carol Marine's Daily Paintworks
Challenge - 'The German Landscape'.  She provided two really great
photographs for this week's work, and when I saw the second
photograph my mind also saw sheep and a shepherd on the road. 
It was fun to work with the reference and my imagination to create
something that was uniquely my own.

Claire, what a beautiful painting. I really like the play of light and shadows. Adding the sheep and shepherd truly made it your own.
