It was great fun to create this composition encompassing all the lovely animals at the “Bad Ass Sheep Farm”. I had the pleasure of visiting the Hendricks Farm over the Holidays when I was visiting family and friends in Wisconsin and meeting all these adorable creatures. Very helpful to capture the spirit of this commission. In the painting: their chickens…(sorry I don’t have names) Dogs: Joy and Bo, Jack (Sparro) the kitty cat, Jacob Sheep Ewes: Rachel and Rebecca, Romney Sheep: 769 & Pitchfork and last, but not least, Penny..the (not so) bad ass! Oh…and the bees, they even make their own fabulous honey…from the Division of Angry Bees! Such lovely people and an idealic little farm, thanks Beth Ann & John!
Jacob Sheep Ewes, Rachel and Rebecca…love their markings! Raw Honey, brought to you by the Division of Angry Bees!

I've had the pleasure of showing with many of these women over the years here in Chicago at local art fairs. On May 12th, we host our own indoor show! So mark your calendars and come out for a fabulous day of shoppping and fun with some amazing artists and women!

Forgive my lame mobile upload…just wanted to share yesterday's drawing. Inspired by taxes, indirectly…I snapped this photo in the west loop on the way to my accountant's office. Of course I never draw or paint anything exactly as I see it, it's always just my impression. So long February 2012, you did not disappoint.
