'Connemara Ram' SOLD
8" x 10" = 20.3 x 25.4 cms oil on canvas board
Last week-end we took a trip up to Co. Galway and to the beautiful Connemara area. We were lucky with the weather and we only experienced a few showers of rain. This ram was among a bunch of very woolly black-faced sheep we encountered tripping down the road and looking like wooly toadstools from the back. This one posed for me by the side of the road against the trees bracken and granite rocks. The Connemara is full of lakes mountains and boggy areas, heather and gorse, really wild and full of scenes to paint. There are many artisans living in the area and is a place I am considering moving to.
