Sheep In Winter

Posted by Betsy Barron (Philadelphia, PA, United States) on 16 February 2009 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

She’s a decades-long Philadelphia artist who combines her eye for form and function with the calm aesthetic of a passer by. Guided by light and lines with impact, her work speaks to the worth of daily pleasures and absorbing your field of view.

@Russ Devan: I think he was looking at Just Bob wondering, "Who is that man with the Batman Belt?"

So pure. I love this...almost as much as the cow with the grassy nose. Love,

So beautiful. I rarely see sheep because our climate is too hot for them. Love the capture. It appears to be posing for you.
