nteresting composition with a beautiful head! Perhaps like me more without the fence that visual effect seems to come out of his skull! I imagine that was so or in any way. It happens when something you really like! With or without distorting element picture ... in these cases I always prefer to do the photography! Best regards, Adela

Love the smoky colors in that averted face........and the lovely loop of those ears. Are these all the same sheep? What a patient model..........

@joemulligan: This series features many different sheep. I have learned to my surprise that not all sheep look alike. ;-) I always appreciate your comments, Joe. Thanks.

@KriKridesign: I can see there are some amusing things going on in those cartoons...I will have to invite my French husband to translate the captions for me. Unfortunately I do not speak French. Thanks for the blogsite !

This lovely sheep looks like she has a stylish, hand woven scarf around her neck. I love the angles, textures, and colors of this art photo.
