Sheep in the Road
9.5" x 13" oil on board

The Virtual Paintout is painting this month on the the Isle of Man. Riding around,  using Google Street Views, I came upon these sheep not just in the road, but all around - it seems they own the place! What with the hedges of daffodils, flowering hillsides, and sunny skies, it was just a beautiful place to paint!

Flowers and Tapestry
11" x 14" oil on canvas

This painting really took on a life of its own once I started painting it. It was supposed to be so easy, simple in concept, simple in execution, but that was not how it went. The color changed, the paint got thicker! Still, that's why painting is so much fun - you think you know how something will turn out, then you follow one color or shape to the next and you end up as surprised as anyone, and hopefully as pleased!

This canvas has deep sides, about 1 3/4 " wide, and all sides are painted. It hangs flush against the wall, and while it does not need framing, you could certainly get creative and frame it up if you like.
