STASHED AWAY by Sheep Incognito

STASHED AWAY by Sheep Incognito

For your favorite fiber hoarder and stashoholic

Stashed Away is a good piece of wall art for your favorite knitting nook, fiber studio, or even just a place that needs some happiness when you walk by it.

I painted this using Winsor & Newton, Lukas, and Old Holland Oil Paints – I just love the heavy pigment saturation of them. Once you use good oils, you will never go back to student grade paints.

We create giclée reproductions on canvas of this on in various sizes – all available on the website by clicking here.

A New Sleeping Beauty in the Studio

Sleeping Booty

A new sheep happening in my studio this week

This is a new, rather large painting I am working on – something that made me smile…I do hope the title is not viewed as offensive, or vulgar, as my flock definitely does not want to be viewed like that.

Me, trying to work on any project after 7pm at night…not even awake enough to put the nightcap on the right end…yup.

Title: “SLEEPING BOOTY
Size: 48″ x 24″
Media: Oils on canvas

Price: tbd…if you already own some of my original paintings, I do offer a discount for being a “Good Sheep Hoarder”, so just let me know if you would like to offer this Sleeping Beauty a comfy home.

A Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR AHEAD!

The year has already shown itself to be going in a good direction – a few days off between shows, is always a very good thing, seeing that I am usually on the road more than I am at home.
We took several weeks off to be home with family, celebrate Christmas, hang out in PJ’s at home, and just not do much of anything.

Christmas was fun, filled with laughter, good people, marvelous cookies, food, hot chocolate, and I think I might be fluffier than any of my sheep ever are, now.

New Year’s Eve was  more of a “Retirement Home Excitement” evening – just hanging out, not doing much of anything, except watching movies with my daughters. Just the right speed after the hectic of the Fall show season…

Then, of course, there was the issue of our trailer going missing from the driveway, and being found in the woods about half an hour away, with all the artwork, panels, prints, and originals being tossed about rather roughly. And, our backup inventory of prints, some tools, and some parts from the trailer gone missing. Fortunately, we are working with a fantastic Insurance company to help us recoup and regroup, hopefully in time for the big show frenzy of Spring arriving.

On the upside of that: the thieves were apparently dumb enough to leave the original paintings on the panels, and to actually steal signed prints, that are very much identify-able. If you see anything pop up in your neck of the woods, or online, by all means, please let me know.

I would post pictures, but something here isn’t working – technical issues are persisting, and, quite frankly, my life is too short to spend hours on trying to sort all that out…I’d rather be painting and re-creating what was damaged in that event.

Not being technically savvy is problematic – but, I do have enough skills to add new discount coupons! And, I love supplying the world with sheepish smiles and happy thoughts!

So to help your year start off with smiles as well, here is a coupon code you can use on my website to “fluffify” your world for the new year:

Enter code “FLUFFY” on the cart at checkout at the Sheep Incognito website to get 15% off your entire purchase!

If you run into any kind of trouble – please drop me a line at the studio through the webform on my website…it’s the only way to ensure that I actually get the mail.

So here’s to a year

Filled with fun – do something silly that makes you giggle, every day.

Filled with peace – don’t sweat the small stuff, and forgive stupidity.

Filled with happiness – focus on good memories. good people. good things. good people.

And, filled with just a touch of sheepish outlook on life: sleep alot. eat as much as you need. hang out with peaceful friends. Bounce when happy. Burp so you don’t explode. Look beautiful in a sunset. Be wary of weird things. Explore new pastures. Eat lots of healthy greens. And most of all: make someone else smile. It’ s what makes everybody’s world better!
