‘Sheep Gathering at a Hay Feeder’

An oil painting of Texal Sheep feeding at a hay feeder

‘ Sheep Gathering at a Hay Feeder’

 

Oil on canvas

I pass this field on the way to my gallery and on this particular occasion there where sheep grazing and gathering at the hay feeder and thought immediately would make for an ideal painting. I sold the painting in my gallery shortly after hanging it on the wall. The couple that bought the painting have since commissioned me to paint their house which is situated not to far away in the country.
