Well I guess I have had sheep on my mind for some reason lately since they were in a recent painting of mine, ” Town and Country.” As you can see, this time sheep only,  fenced in their green pasture. I also took this opportunity to practice on my fence work going from the foreground to background, or visa versa. In my case I went from front to back.

For those of you that would like to know more about sheep you can learn more here.

    Fence looks great, Deb. Those sheep are just chilling in the pasture, ears hanging, pincer feet pointing, all fluffy and soft. Kind of feels like i’m missing out :-) Is the 1 staring at me the black sheep? Kind of lonely, huh? You enjoy your weekend.

      Lol…Yes, that one is looking for some attention from you….looks like it got what is wanted. lol
      Glad to know that fence looks good. I needed some practice and this was my chance.
      You’re so funny, Kathryn!
      Have a great weekend!
      Hugs, xx

    I really like that fence. It’s very three-dimensional, and it really looks like it recedes into the distance. The clouds look a little ominous, though. Those sheep had better get back to their condos!

      Binky! Now I feel better about my fence, not that I didn’t to begin with, but even better, being I admire your ability to get an awesome 3 dimensional look in your artwork.
      I like ominous skies…that more fun to paint too.
      Ha ha ha, the condos….those houses did have a lot of windows, huh.
      Thanks Binky!
      Hugs, xx

    • Deb February 24, 2012 at 8:42 am #

      Yes, and I have no idea what brought it on either….Oh, I bet is was that painting I did a few days back.
      The two in the back are having a talk about something, hun.

    Great job on the fence, Deb, and the sheep are so cute. Keep counting your sheep if it brings wonderful artwork our way! :) xx

    • Deb February 24, 2012 at 8:13 am #

      I’m glad you feel that way, because I don’t know that I’m ready to stop painting them yet. Glad to hear I did well on the fence.
      Thank you, Lauren!

    Good piece Debs! :)

    The fence looks good and so do the sheep! :)

    My granddad was arrested for worrying sheep – he’d stand on the wall and shout: “MINT SAUCE!!!” LoL!!!

    Love and hugs!


    • Deb February 24, 2012 at 10:18 am #

      Thank Prenin…I’m glad you like it!
      Sounds like your granddad was a character.

      Love and Hugs,

      Warm greetings to you too, my friend!

    Good job on the fence as you got the perspective just right & it looks very natural. If I can’t sleep tonight I can get on the computer & count your sheep.

    • Deb February 25, 2012 at 12:45 pm #

      Thanks Tony! And you go right ahead to come here on your sleepless night… my sheep will help you out. :-)
      Hugs, xx

    Actually it reminds me of the latest comic at Dr. X’s site

    • Deb February 25, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

      Ha ha ha…That was cute!
      Thanks Tony!

    Why is that sheep staring at me? Better not be a wolf in sheep’s clothing!

    • Deb February 25, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

      I don’t know, Loon. Are you feeling a little…well you know. Nope, your right, it’s looking at you. One never knows what is lurking under all the fur.
      Hugs, xx

    Perhaps sheep are peaceful looking and remind you of sweet dreams??? LOL They are sweet little creatures, and I love this painting you always have a way of making me smile. Hope you have a great weekend. ;) xox

    • Deb February 25, 2012 at 1:04 pm #

      Yes they are sweet, and they make me think of all sorts of peaceful things. ;-)
      So glad it made you smile, Raven!
      Love and Hugs,
      Deb xx

    Debbie, I just love your blog. :-)

    • Deb February 25, 2012 at 1:48 pm #

      Thank you, Hanneke! And I love your blog too! I was visiting earlier in your space and looked everywhere for a link in your side bar for “Follow Via Email,” so I would get notification in my email each time you postsed…but could not find one anywhere. :-(. I did clink on the “Follow” button on the top of your blog, but I never get notifications in my email of new posts when I do only that. Can I talk you into putting the widget in your sidebar?…I hope so..I don’t want to miss your posts.
      Thank you for coming by and the lovey comment you made…Your very kind!
      Hugs, xx

    Excellent piece of art Deb. You have done an amazing job.
    It feels very warm and cosy this painiting of yours and it has nothing to do with wool in particular :)
    Beautiful touch!
    Hugs Traceyxx

    Those two off in the ‘baaaaaackground’ look like they’re discussing what a nice job you’ve done of rendering them, Deb! :)

    • Deb February 27, 2012 at 12:26 pm #

      I love the way you put things, Bob! You always make me smile….thank you!
      Hugs, xx
