Wanting A Hug, Wooly Sheep

Wanting A Hug, Wooly Sheep
8” x 10” original oil painting
gallery wrapped stretched canvas

Available in my online store

I've created this painting with an unfinished look
to give the viewer the impression that
the sheep is coming out of the canvas

My fondness of sheep is well known
by those of you that follow my paintings.
Most sheep that I've encountered are
docile, curious, and huggable.
When mingling amongst sheep
in the farmyard or barn,
and as much as you want to hug them,
there are times when a friendly sheep
obviously wants a hug from you.

Those of you that have followed
my painting through the years
know of my fondness for sheep,

The time I spend with wooly farm friends
is truly delightful and always
even more precious when
the cuddly lambs are frolicking
around the barnyard.
Momma sheep is still friendly while
caring for and loving her lamb.

These lovely peony blossoms
are from a faithful-bloomer
peony plant in my garden.
Every year it provides
wonderful & very fragrant
blooms for me to paint.

I've included subtle hues
from the peony colors
into the lights & shadows.
Plus, I've detailed the reflections
to create a colorful and
soft harmony in this painting.
