More sheep

July 14th, 2014

Always on the look out for sheep! Here are two I found in Finland.

I didn’t see live sheep but there was an island out in front of our cottage and there were sheep on it. We could hear them baa baaing in the evening.

Some said this wasn’t a sheep, perhaps a duck or a horse, BUT, I think he looks like a sheep, so a sheep he is!

Working on sketching sheep for a project and remembered a book I haven’t looked at in years. “Henry Moore’s Sheep Sketchbook”. Dug out my copy and spent a rainy afternoon with an old friend and a cup of tea.

My copy with it’s dogeared cover.

Looked it up on line to see if it is still in print and discovered that it was reissued as a paperback. (Also found a video about the reissue.)
