2008, Acrylic on Canvas, 9”x 12”
The theme of The Black Sheep of the Family started with a simple request from one of my buyers. I’m sure she envisioned something different. But sheep are always contrary, just like the backwards white sheep that might be the black sheep of the family.
Then again, the color of the contrary sheep might be different if you were on the other side of the sheep line-up here. So it all seems to depend largely on the point of view – black to one might be white to another. Which is the point I am trying to make with it. (All this from the black sheep of the family herself).
