Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This piece of art is the third in a series about sheep in a garden. My focus has been Celtic and Renaissance inspired art for a long time. Sheep are a big part of the Irish landscape and the interlaced flowers are partly inspired by Celtic interlacings.

The idea of farm animals in a garden was partly inspired by many commutes through Washington County, NY. There are a lot of small galleries scattered throughout the county, and most of them feature farm animals and farm landscapes. This was my way of contributing to the visual arts scenery of that county.

Hummingbirds are also a theme in my art. As I was painting the red flowers, I knew that hummingbirds were attracted to red flowers. Thus the focus of the painting.

A lot of my art is also influenced by Renaissance art (and millefleurs in particular).
