After a day of cold, wind and rain yesterday, Mother N decided to dip the temps even lower today and add some snow. This type of weather during lambing makes your heart sink. While snow is highly unusual at this time of the year, it is the risk of lambing on pasture in a northern climate. Thank goodness we are not into the thick of lambing yet.
Over the last couple days I have been ping ponging between pouting about the weather, feeling relieve we don’t have a pile of lambs on the ground and working in the art room.
I went back to working on this piece, which I started a over month ago. The original thought for this one was for it to be a scene of three pieces. Upon nearing completion of the two individual dogs and laying the pieces on the table with the incomplete third piece, the overall look isn’t jiving. [Having the pieces crammed together so they fit on the table doesn't help, but gives the idea].
It will be a little different when the piece of the sheep is finished and more matched with the others, yet I don’t think that is the reason for it not jiving. I like the pair of dogs quite a bit, and the scene with the resting sheep is making a decent scene on its own. So I think my one piece idea has become two.
