Hi Rob!
Thanks for checking out my blog and the kind words about my work. Had to check out yours as well. Awesome! Great color and guts to paint animals. Your paintings show you really know your subject. I love all the sheep! I used to raise Jacob and Navajo four horned sheep and seeing your paintings brings back the wonderful memories of lambing!
