"Looking at Ewe" oil 8 x 10
"Looking at Ewe" (sorry, Bogey), is my take on this month's painting challenge for Girls Just Wanna Paint. The September theme is "expression". When my husband and I were married 20+ years ago, we went to England for our wedding trip. We took a number of hikes alongside pastures filled with sheep. The expression on these sheep brought me right back; mildly curious, mildly wary, mildly interested, certainly focused. See the rest of the group's take on "expression" here.
The painting was commissioned as a wedding gift for a young woman who is raising sheep, and making wool, and yarn. Thoughtful gift, no?
Here's a link to Bogart and Bergman and their iconic moment from "Casablanca".
As always, thanks for looking. I love your comments.
