Sheep (Paintings) Herded South

A flock of my small sheep paintings and I are headed south for the weekend, to the SECC in Glasgow for the Country Living Christmas Fair (Thursday to Saturday). The painting that would have filled the row top right the in-house art critic liked so much it’s staying in my studio for now, and two festive red backgrounds have gone to Skyeworks. Which is your favourite?

Three other little ones, on A5 sized boards rather than canvas, are on their way to Patchings Art Centre near Nottingham for another festive exhibition. (My camera has blown out the colours somewhat, unfortunately) These were mostly done with acrylic inks, which on the absorbent boards gave watercolour-like results. I had great trouble stopping, not doing yet another little tweak on a cloud. Ultimately the need to get them in the post was what stopped me.

FREE TICKETS: I have 30 free tickets to give away for the Country Living Christmas Fair in Glasgow at the weekend. I haven’t checked how many are still left, but head to the online ticket office and try the promo code CLGLA012.

  1. Hi Marion….. I LOVE number 11 so much but I simply ADORE the third one of the ‘watercolour/acrylic ink ‘ ones. How clever you are! The sheep just make me smile……x

  2. They all have their merits. I love the moons, snow and colors… The A5 paintings are awesome with the moons, clouds, greens and blues… Have FUN!

  3. I have two favorites , Numbers 11 and 20. Joseph and Mary making their way to the Inn and an uncertain but moonlit night and starlight on their clothes and One of the three wise men number 20 bearing gifts from afar probably gold in this case with light reflecting off his cloak. I love Christmas.

  4. 5- fluffy sheep on green, 20- sparkly green sheep, 24- lovely setting for the pair. The clouds are nice. Thanks for sharing. Textures are inspiring.
