EDM 2016, The Everyday in May Challenge.

Tranquil misty farm view.

This is my second EDM ( Everyday in May challenge ) that is 31 paintings in 31 days ! I enjoyed the journey last year, and managed to finish them all this year too. It is a great way to get going with watercolour sketching or journalling. Lots of disciplined practice.

'Sheep resting',- oil painting.

Photographing our sheep through all the seasons & years of living on a sheep farm continually inspires me to paint them.

Sheep May Safely Graze

‘Sheep may safely graze’, is the theme, and though we may rest safely in the care of our precious Lord Jesus, the sheep depicted here, on the farms in our district are never safe from the threat of predators.
