Ewegenie stared straight ahead not wanting to alarm her little lambs
but her senses were on high alert.
Gertrude was watching her, she just knew it.
Gertrude stood still as a statue, convinced Ewegenie couldn’t see her.
Unfortunately she held her breath for too long and passed out in the pasture;
Woken later by the bleats of victory from Ewegenie.
(Where am I going with this lol) Does anyone know what happened next?
A couple of people asked about cards of this painting. They are available in my Society6 shop.
p.s. I had to chop the top off the image for Society6. If I can find somewhere to scan it in I will swap the image. It’s way too big for my scanner.
Time for our weekly segment, Ewe News.
- “First up in Ewe News is Catherine has sold her first art print of a sheep from her Etsy shop, Drips and Sploshes to a buyer in England all whilst she was jumping in a leaf pile with her kids. Those English love their sheep.”
- “There is a great new resource for artists by our blogging friend, Sofie, showing us how to promote your art. I think you have to be a newsletter subscriber to get the password.”
- “Wrapping up the news today are a few noisy sheep and goats with their bleating in a muddle. Whatever are they trying to say?
I’ll do a collage tutorial on Friday. Hopefully some supplies arrive by then. Have a great week!
Let’s start the week with some fun shall we? I heard a very interesting story about a farmer who was fed up getting his sheep stolen so he dyed them all orange. (I didn’t say it was a happy story 😛 )
Here is the scoop if you are so inclined to check it out.
If you were a sheep would you be happy with that? I’m on the shelf at the moment. It would be funky for a day or two. At least get them some shades.
After a bit of investigating it seems that orange sheep are not so rare. Scotland has some for show purposes:
But those two examples are ( I believe) from being sprayed orange. There is actually an orange breed of sheep. This short video explains where they get the color from.
They look amazing! I want to paint them.
There’s even an orange pom pom sheep craft you can do with kids.
Let me know if you ever spot an orange sheep. Take a picture!
