Mostly sheep paintings will be in the art show that will be hung on April 1st, which is the first Friday of the month, then remain up for the month. I will be at the show from 5 until 7 on that Friday night, and will buy any friends of mine a gelato for stopping by. The cute little shop, is owned by Chantel Drennen who is a friend of Frank, my son. They were both undergrads at Drury University several years ago, so I will donate any proceeds from this show to Drury.
This might be my favorite of the group of paintings. The first painting I did for this show was the 18x18 of the two sheep. Then I was just in love with the sheep and started doing all the smaller paintings. So one night Bob walked out into my art studio ( which means he left ESPN for a short time) and saw this little painting. So, he asked, did this sheep get divorced from the other sheep. I said, why do you ask that, well it looks like you cut his picture out from the other one, and that is what you do when you get divorced. I just hate to name the picture the "Divorced Sheep" so we will call it the "Lone Sheep"
