About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

NURSERY SHEEP PAINTINGS









NURSERY SHEEP SERIES
12" x 18" Acrylic Paintings on Gallery Wrap Canvas

When my first grandchild was born I created a series of paintings for his nursery.  My daughter and I found some darling bedding with lamb designs so that determined the theme of his room.  (which is funny since my son-in-law is part of a cattle ranching family)

I had almost forgotten these paintings since my grandson is now 5 and has long since outgrown a sheep themed room.  He is much more interested in Mario and Spiderman these days.  I decided I needed to photograph and preserve these little, cartoon paintings since they will probably not be part of the family much longer. 

My niece has just opened a consignment shop for infant and children's clothing.  I encouraged my daughter to take these pieces and try to sell them.  It was after I saw them hanging in the shop today that I realized I'd never mentioned them online.

Here they are....four little sheep enjoying themselves and looking for a new home.
