Sheep Chase - 13" x 16" Acrylic
This picture comes from my book The Barnyard Night Before Christmas, here again demonstrating how things that you know and love can filter into your art and add authenticity to your work. As I mentioned yesterday, I grew up in a fairly rural setting and we had opportunities to care for animals including sheep and chickens. I think this familiarity helped me when depicting the characters in this book.This painting was one of a series of five from the book that were selected to appear in the prestigious Communication Arts Illustration Annual 49. This book as well as my other books can be purchased right here.
