Counting Sheep

“Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.”
Ovid

Counting Sheep

6″ x 6″ x 3/4″ Acrylic on Ampersand Artist Panel

These panels are wonderful!  They are smooth, yet there’s a little bit of canvas like texture.  They are cradled, not wrapped.  Of course I painted the image around the edges.  🙂

There is just something wonderful about sheep, grazing in a meadow.  Now I have to take a nap.

About Ovid

“Publius Ovidius Naso, the Roman poet known as Ovid, best known for the epic Metamorphoses, is considered one of the greatest poets of Latin literature. He was born in 43 B.C. in what is now Italy. He rose quickly in Roman government and was on track to become a senator when he chose to devote himself to poetry instead. His tale of Pyramus and Thisbe is the source for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Emperor Augustus exiled Ovid from Rome for unknown reasons in 8 A.D.; he died in exile in 17 A.D. ”

    I like the shapes and the greens in this painting, Beth. I think I, oftentimes, forget to simplify my images to fit what I want to say. You are a master at this!

      Thanks so much, Linda! I get my ideas from ordinary photographs. I’m working on a painting of a 1968 International fire truck right now. I promise… it has never really looked like this, but I am having soooooo much fun!!! 😀
