A Lot had happened these past 2 Years: The mobile gallery for the Sheep Incognito has been parked, just waiting to get rolling again, after this pandemic is over. On the Family Front, there has been a graduation on the front porch, a wedding in the back yard, a birth of a beautiful grandson, and so many more things that all served to keep us from getting depressed about being stuck at home.
Painting had to take a break, with all those happenings going on – and it has evolved into more digital painting on the iPad, in ProCreate – because it’s nice to sit outside sipping coffee, while painting, instead of being cooped up inside.
Here is the latest of this new-fangled process I am still trying to master:
TITLE: “Highland Rendezmoo” – available on the website in various sizes and finishes:
The New 2019 Sheep Incognito Wall Calendar Is Here!
Snag ‘Em While Ewe Can – only 500 available!
…and, a free blooper is included this year…
As every year since 2006 or so, we have created a new Sheep Incognito wall calendar for you – it has become a favorite in many offices, conference rooms, class rooms, and family homes. Mainly, because the cute Sheep Incognito will make ewe smile!
This year – due to a very hectic time during the layout process – we overlooked the most prominent bit of text on the front page of the calendar: the year’s date.
Everything else inside the calendar, such as months, year date, and holidays are correct – just that front page number was not noticed and changed on the front page.
So Ewe will now own a bit of “Bloopery Art History”, when you snag one of these limited edition wall calendars.
13 months of Conni’s sheepish humor, some really strange, some really funny, some just happy, holidays during each month, so ewe will always have something to look forward to in each month.
And, this being a limited edition calendar – we have cut the edition down from 1200 copies to only 500!
If you would like your copy signed by the artist, Conni Tögel, please specify at checkout, or give us a call at the studio.
And this year, we are offering sweet “Flock Discounts” on them as well – get your entire Christmaaaahs shopping done in one fell swoop – the more ya buy, the more ya save, kind of thing.
We do love sending smiles to the world – so thank ewe for helping our efforts by letting the Sheep Incognito hang out wherever ewe happen to be hanging out!

The West Side Of This Country Is My Favorite Place To Be – Here My Top Ten Reasons Why:
The Sky: whether dark and gloomy, bright and sunny, stormy or cloudy – usually all of the above at once. One thing is sure: it reminds you how small and insignificant one person can be.
The grasslands: The prairie part of the US might seem boring – mainly because it is so vast. But looking closer, you begin to notice details: Pronghorn antelopes with their offspring. Fields of sunflowers bobbing in the wind. An old homestead up on the hill, surrounded by big, wind-torn trees. Miles and miles of fences. A few random cows sprinkled amongst the wavy grass patches of all shades of green.
If you ever feel claustrophobic – this place is the antidote for you.
The Water: Life-force of everthing, water plays a center-stage role in everything out west. Reservoirs for keeping huge metropolitan cities green, or puddles for the cows to slurp out of on hot summer days. My favorite feature of any watery spot out west: it reflects the sky (see 1. above)
The People: nowhere else in the USA will you find this mix of outdoorsy, politically interested, technology oriented, healthy living, open-minded people from all around the world – seemingly all getting along quite well. And, colorful people they are, too…I love just talking with people at the next table – always something to learn or share (yes, people elsewhere are lovely as well – but out West has my heart)…
The Food: yes, twice. Try Rock Inn in Estes Park, Colorado.Or the Thai Kitchen. Yep, you are welcome again.
The Mountains: You knew this already. But did you realize THIS is what you have been missing:
The Wildlife: Encounters of the wild sort seem to be the daily standard:
The Festivals: the West does it best. People come to support whatever the cultural events can throw at them. Great fun!
It Is Home: After spending 12 years in the Frontrange of Colorado, and after being gone for just as long, it still feels like home to me.
Inspiring, uplifting, and sunny skies – it makes a pretty good case for being out West at least once a year with my Sheep Incognito flock….
