"Gray Wolf" Pastel

"Gray Wolf" is a new pastel I just completed. I used Terry Ludwig pastels and Derwent pastel pencils
on Color Fix paper. My reference photo was taken by Emmanuel Keller and permission given to me to for this art.

Not So Wooly Sheep oil painting

Oil on gessoed board

I guess you can tell I like painting sheep. I passed by a field one day with some wooly sheep grazing and thought I need to go back to take some photos. Well to my surprise when I finally got by there again with my camera, the sheep all got haircuts. Being a daughter of a sheep farmer, I know why this happens. My dad sold the wool from the sheep we raised. So this is my painting of one of the not so wooly sheep. 6x6 oil on gessoed board.

English Horse Head Dress oil painting

4x4 oil painting
One of the miniatures that I have been working on for a Miniature show in Chambersburg. This is a 4x4 oil painting done from my own reference photo taken at a horse show at Swan Lake Stables in Littlestown. I liked the horse's head dress but is actually a netting to keep the flies off the horses ears.
