"I LOVE your art. It really speaks to me. Tagging my friend
since I have a feeling she would appreciate it, too."
It took me a few years to finish this image. Only because I was busy doing other things. I was very excited to finally watch this come together. I made the Ewe and lambs separately from the background to make sure they actually LOOKED like sheep and not blobs. They were inserted using Photoshop. The right lamb is a flopped version of the left one.
What inspired me to make Sheep? My sister always loved Sheep for one thing and I always love seeing them at the county Fair. I have Lambs Ear plants in my yard and a Leaf Artist would be TOTALLY silly not to make Sheep out of them. Plus, an old Permaculture classmate posted a photo on FB of a Sheep from his flock which was perfect for reference. I was inspired...
My Sheep-loving sister came up with the word "Ewe" and I immediately liked it. It sounds like "You" which invites you to step into the pasture and be a part of the scene!
The sheep are, of course, Lambs Ear leaves (they are so fuzzy!). I used pink Impatient flower petals inside the Lambs ears.
Lush green Moss is across the center with a Maple leaf lower left. The green slope and pasture that forms the horizon is Iris. Five fern trees are along the top. I suspect the leaf on the upper right is a Maple and there is a small Burning Bush leaf and piece of yellow Kale there as well. Paw paw is the yellow leaf bottom right with aged Goldenrod and Common Rush placed on top. A dried wildflower (unknown) is along the left edge. Gray Coltsfoot was used for nose and ears. Brown aged Norway Maple was used for the Ewe nose & eyes.
As leaves are biodegradable and will fade and deteriorate quickly, original Art is scanned immediately after creation, preserving their beauty long after originals are gone.
