A shift from the golds of late summer to the greens of early summer. This little herd of sheep was living close to our house. Klickitat County has a history with sheep and cattle. It is about the only thing this land will support. Even that is a rough life, but sheep make everything peaceful. These guys were grazing along the road and we stopped so I could take the photo. Since that time I have been trying to figure out how to paint them. After the workshop, ideas came to mind. There was a lump of a hill between the sheep and the far simcoe mountains. I removed the lump and came up with a nicer composition for the painting. That cinder lump of a hill was holding me back.
