Welcome the Year of the Sheep!

January 12, 2015
Super Simple Sumi Sheep

We’re back in Minnesota where the sunshine on the snow is beautiful.  Check out the events page to see about upcoming events that I’m doing.  There will be a demo and classes at Wet Paint Art in St Paul, MN, in February and a class for Families with Children from Asia in late January in Minnetonka, MN.  And coming up is the Year of the Sheep.  I’ve developed some simple ways to paint some very cute sheep! Pictures will come after the classes!   Did you know that in Chinese the word for sheep and goats is the same?  That’s why different people call it the Year of the Sheep or Goat or Ram depending on their preference.

Over the past summer and fall I’ve been developing some different styles of paintings and had a very successful show at the Whidbey Art Gallery in Langley, WA, last September.  Here are some examples……
