The Good Shepherd (John 10:11) is my newest in the series of sheep paintings. Over the years I have compiled such a great assortment of reference photographs of sheep from roadside pastures to agricultural fairs. Pretty much anytime I see roaming sheep I’m compelled to stop and watch. Sheep (and goats) fascinate me and I find myself loosing all sense of time while watching them do their thing. For now I’ll focus on sheep paintings but who knows, there might be a goat series in my future.
