"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.


  1. Look at those gorgeous blues and greens! And this is an awesome gift for this young lady. She will love it!

  2. Thanks, Crimson. I delivered the painting today to the giver of the gift. She was blown away. I love being part of a thoughtful gift event!!!

  3. Love this post and your comment on my tonight's painting. Thanks, dearest GJWP girl.
