These little guys were soooooo worn out & just had to get an afternoon nap. Looks like they were dreaming of Jim!

    Just as sure as I knew I wouldn’t go too long without painting boats, I was just wondering when the farm animals were going to start showing up again. LOL Very nicely done Marsh.

  • We don’t have boats in the heartland…just farm animals! Glad you like them….thanks!

    what a cute bunch of sleepy heads Marsha…great work as always…

  • Thanks, Linda. In the reference photo, they were laying under some trees with alot of mottled shading, so I had to do away with all of that. But they were happily snoozing away & it made a great image.

    Well obviously I didn’t until just seconds after you asked…..and I’m still laughing….. Marsha – 1, Jim – 0

  • I was going to title it “Dreaming of Jim” but only a select few would’ve understood. Obviously, you & Lynda Robinson did! LOL! If the 3 of us were ever together, you wouldn’t stand a chance with her & me….we’d keep you entertained for sure. :)

    Ha Ha! You are kidding!!! These are too gorgeous for words, and I’m sure anyone who would be dreaming of Jim would be wearing a similar, happy expression Marsha!!!

  • Oh, you’re too funny! I always love to read your comments……thanks so much, Lynda.
