Pretty Ewe

Today I finished my sheep doll. It is in a shadow box for display. I have it on auction now for ebay. Here is the link to my eBay store:

The name of my doll is Pretty Ewe. She has a teal dress with little black crows on it. Her wool is tied up with a ribbon for a tiny pig tail... or should I say pony tail... probably sheep tail would be most appropriate.

Sheep Sheep Sheep - no wonder I sleep so well

Sheep are my livelyhood and maybe cows too.... no, I'm not a farmer, I sell them on ebay! Oh, I paint other things as well, but sheep are very steady sellers for me. This week I decided to try my hand at making a sheep doll. Totally original, created by me. It's taking me a couple of days now ( a lot of thinkin' and plannin') and so far I have a sheep head made of polymer clay and I've painted it... and today I sewed a naked sheep body without any arms or legs -correction - I guess they only have legs. If I can figure out how, I will post a picture of it. Yay! I did it!

Tomorrow I should be able to finish it and put it on ebay. There is still lots to do of course. I think I will probably make a dress for her. Tomorrow I will post picts of the finished sheepy. For now I'm off to bed. Counting sheep make me tired.
Oh, one more thing, I like to include scriptures from the bible on my sheep art now and then, and I find a lot of people who buy my art like that. So I thought I would share with you a real cool video I found today (it's Sunday after all) called Reflections of Christ.
Check out the Angels... can you guess how they made them fly?
