Icelandic Sheep Painting at Chicago Art Gallery Show

This painting is the first in my new series that I started working on late in 2012. I decided on an ewe, of a heritage breed of Icelandic Sheep, as the main subject for this painting "Near Home". We raise a few heritage turkeys and chickens after starting with a "Bourbon Red Turkey" tom, that we brought home from a Rare Breeds Livestock show. I will be posting more paintings from my new series of farm landscapes of heritage life stock, as the year goes on.

This piece is currently in a juried show at the Bridgeport Art Gallery in Chicago, IL through Jan. 2013.
