This was painted from the deck of our studio's. I'm looking south
across our property toward our neighbors home. Our donkey, Henry,
at one point was standing within my view. I started to paint him, but
he moved and the sheep walked into the picture. He stood still just
long enough to paint him in and then wandered the pasture. He was not
feeling well and died that night. We think he was close to 13 years old
and we called him Sheepster. I buried him in the pasture.
