Rene, I am shaking with laughter here. They are sheep(s) and one looks like he is falling over - too much of the christmas good cheer I guess!

It does make me think of Rien Poortvliet a Dutch artist.

It's a bit strange this link, but I reckon you can sort it out.
Well worth visiting though!

Ah yes, I see, many rabbits in the snow. It is a strange web site to find your way around but the paintings look marvellous in full size, much more than the thumb nails. I like the way he applies the paint too.

Love this one too Sheila. Love the tones and the whole 'mood' this painting evokes. Typical moorland scene in winter. And the 2 sheep are positioned just so!!

I am tempted to say I paid them to pose for me Marjorie but it would be a fib. Actually sheep are very good at standing still and they are very curious creatures. When I am out painting they often creep up a bit closer to see what is going on.

Red brick against white snow; delicious! Nice sheep too ;)

Not surprised you sold this!

The sheep were the most difficult bit Theresa so I'm glad you like them :)

This has a terrific moody feeling to it.

Thanks David, I can see from your blog that you have also been captivated by rust coloured buildings in snow. Love you December 3rd painting by the way.
