THE GOLDEN FLEECE - acrylic on canvas - NFS

Posted by Picasa
A welcome return to an old theme. I really enjoy painting in this way, but cannot make it happen at will. I am already on to my next one in this vein. It is always such a joy to be able to paint like this because it expresses for me something of the amazing joy of living in Wales. This part of Wales, where we live at present has more sheep than people. This in itself is amazing as it seems that the first thing sheep want to do is to die!
I have called it GOLDEN FLEECE because many of the sheep are painted in massively expensive GOLD paint (I think - 64 carrot gold ... giving it a slightly orange appearance).
I like having fun with my artwork.
