Farmyard Gossip, Alpacas


Farmyard Gossip, Alpacas
5" x 7" original oil painting
gallery wrapped stretched canvas

Available in my online store

These two alpacas
were standing together
and looking like they were
sharing some juicy gossip.
Of course they were
just chewing their cud.

Those of you that have followed me
and my paintings over the years
know of my fondness
for wooly farmyard animals.
Although I more often paint sheep,
I also enjoy alpaca for their
gentleness, beauty, intelligence,
and individual personalities.

Looking For My Friends, Alpaca

Looking For My Friends, Alpaca
5" x 7" original oil painting
gallery wrapped stretched canvas

Available in my online store


This alpaca is attentively
Looking for My Friends,
keeping an awareness as to the
whereabouts of its family group.

Alpacas enjoy the company of
other alpacas. As herd animals
they develop social relationships
among each other.

At a recent alpaca show,
as individual alpaca were separated from
their family group for judging,
we could see and hear their caring concern
that they express for each other
when one alpaca departs
or returns to the family group.

Those of you that have followed me

a great fondness of mine.

In this painting, I've tried to capture
the cuddly softness of the
fuzzy & fluffy baby lamb wool.

Friendly, yet playful together
these two newborn lambs are
wonderfully adorable.

Warm Light, Wooly Sheep

Warm Light, Wooly Sheep

5" x 7" original oil painting
gallery wrapped stretched canvas

Available in my online store


When we all think about sheep,
see a flock of sheep, or mention sheep
we also think of their wool
which has been used for its warmth
throughout history in many countries.

The Warm Light of this setting,
along with this huggable Wooly Sheep,
complement each other delightfully
in both function and beauty.

A bouquet of perennial flowers give this

Little lambs are just too cute!
