"The Seductive Stairway", 9 x 12ish, oil on panel

I see this stairway every time I go to Manor Park to see the Highland cattle grazing. It is down near the small lake where the swans and the other water fowl are. I won't tell you what is at the top of the stairs -  that's your choice.

"Longwool Couple", 8 x 10, oil on panel

These are Wesleydale Longwool sheep. I found them at the Kent County show and got to meet their owners and eventually ended up at their farm to take lots of reference photos. Their wool is absolutely beautiful and of course I got 2 fleeces to process and spin. The bonus for me was the visit with the lady  afterwards. She is a really good artist so we had lots in common.

"Lost in the Field". 10 x 8, oil on panel, done solely with 3 sticks.

This painting is the result of a painting challenge that I came upon through Facebook. It was fun. Not quite like a palette knife painting but close. I had to make friends with the sticks because they were not uniform or flat. One stick did get a little bit of a sanding though.
