I can happily spend all day in the barn with the expectant ewes and new mothers with their lambs. If I don't move too much they become fairly accustomed to my prescenc. I love their peacefulness and baaing and cud chewing and hot panting breath. They are so beautiful. I keep quiet and then Hannah comes in with the bottled milk and they all rise and move off, and the lambs bleat and tear around. This painting is in Art in the Garden, the fund raising event for the Historical Soc. in Washington Pa on Sunday 9th Sept
Peppers and tomatoes. Slight variation on a theme! tomorrow I am going to buy peaches from Simmon's farm as I have heard they are wonderful.
This is a small oil painting for the Art in the Garden fund raising event for the Historical Society at the Le Moyne Garden in Washington this coming Sunday afternoon (Sept 9th). The house is on a small tributary off the Fowey river in Cornwall, England and is owned by the National Trust and can be rented. It is a delightful place for a holiday. Wonderful walks, beaches, pubs, (pubs on beaches) and sailing, scuba diving and gardens and National Trust houses to visit.Try to go during regatta week in late August if you get the chance. Lots to do and completely picturesque .
This is one of a series of paintings requested for the Sewickley Farm Show. It is a painting of Hannah from the Elysian Farm feeding her lamb. I asked her if she came and played with the lambs after school every day and she exclaimed, "Oh no! He's my responsibility!" Hence the title .
