The sheep were a different story, but they were awesome nonetheless...Thanks again to Colchester Farm, (not really Maggie's Farm!) they put up with me dragging my easel back and forth from one side of the pasture to the other...following the animals around(!) This farm is lovely and they had the most amazing collection of sunflowers. I wanted to paint them, however, it's not often that I have such a great collection of farm animals to paint. Some very large pumpkins too! I photographed a haystack they are building out in the front at a couple of different times of day. It would be nice to paint them...Monet painted his plein air, I will probably need to paint them in my studio, using my photos as a reference. It will be good to see how they turn out!

I thought I would include a picture of Simba...the hard-working farm cat. Must be that painting, when I brought it home, my cat's first order of business was to walk on it as well. I guess they approve of it. Oh yes, the cow is 24"x20", the sheep, 20"x20."
