Original Sold.

Acrylic painting on linen canvas panel, 12 × 16 inches. Done during Sojie 16 Landscape and Light, which was one of Red Bubble’s Solo Exhibition group’s translation projects, where artists interpret photos into traditional art, (or digital!), offered by photographers.

I translated Peter Hammer’s beautiful photo, Sheep Country, into traditional hand done artwork.

Most of my work is done subconsciously and intuitively, without a plan. I believe there are meanings in it for each of us to find. Sometimes, it’s just about enjoying the absurdity! Full Bio

    Love it Cindy! Always reminds me of the sound of music “ewe, a sheep, a female sheep” lol!

  • LOL, thanks. An alternate title might have been “Ewe’s Happy,” hee heeh!

    So great! “Eyes happy, Ewe’s Happy, Everybody’s Happy!” I love how your yellow is very balanced, between the sheep, the grasses, the middle ground trees, and the clouds; and of course complimented with your indigos. Makes me smile!

  • Thanks, Frannie!
