New Painting

Ok, even i like this sweet sheep painting... 
she still needs a little work, but it will have to wait until next weekend... 

 back to work tomorrow for me!
gotta pay for these freakin expensive canvases! 

I actually painted her twice... I could only find a small canvas at AC Moore 
( i wanted a square shape)
 and none at Michaels...  
and i really wanted to do her bigger... 
but 20 x 20 was all i could find in a square and i couldn't wait to paint her, so i just went ahead..

Here is the smaller one, a slight difference in color... a little more brownish, the larger one is more gray
20 x 20

here is the small one hanging at my friends shop, still wet paint and unsigned

wouldn't she be wonderful in a chippy white frame

Once i painted her in 20 x 20, i was like DRAT, should've done her bigger... so i went searching and found a bigger square canvas at Hobby Lobby... 

used my iphone to get a 40% off coupon

that canvas is $50.00 bucks originally!

Here she is painted again on the bigger canvas, with me holding up a rose from my garden, 

don't you think it would be pretty to paint this pink rose somewhere on the painting with her?

me holding a rose up to her ear...

Once i finish her, (i'm gonna mess with her hair a little more...)

I'll probably take her to my photographer/printer and get a special photo taken of her so i can make giclee prints... 
meaning i can reproduce her on canvas for purchase... 
If you want to know more about giclee prints the link below will take you to a place on my website that explains

giclee prints are pretty nice

i can actually have a fine art print of her made, and paint a rose right on the canvas if i want... or little bluets or violets or anything i want to paint to personalize her...!

 you know it would be fun to weave flowers all in her crazy fur!

my hair looks something like that in the morning, especially my bangs, they go every which way
and finally here she is, mostly finished,  on a 30 x 30 canvas with the paint still drying and unsigned


oh yeah, and no roses


...the end...


  1. Cindy,
    Your sheep painting is absolutely gorgeous!!!!!! She looks so real.As if I could reach out and feel her beautiful fur!

  2. shes beautiful alone but roses are my favorite so she would be lovely like that too! u r sooo talented. Love,love love it!

  3. She is absolutely beautiful!!!! How in the world do you paint the same one twice! You are such an amazing artist...a true gift. I love them both but the larger one in the grey tones is my favorite. I believe if you make glicee prints you will sell alot. I sure hope you keep one for your home.

    1. Hi Kerrie :) i agree with everything you said,Cindy is an amazing gifted artist.

      Cindy seriously she is beautiful and i think roses and flowers in your paintings would be amazing as you paint flowers and animal;s so beautifully,oh please paint roses in her hair it would be so pretty,i am excited to see!the painting were her cheeks are blushed and you are holding a rose over her eye is dreamy! xxx

  4. i love the 20x20 girl. i think you're on to something with this close up which makes the painting (for me) read very modern and young. i think lovers of modern decor, for example, might really dig the style because of its simplicity, texture, and monochromatic look. i can see it in a very spare and edited loft space with modern furnishings. this would bring a ton of warmth and charm to a space like that.

    BRAVO, m'lady!


  5. Cindy, she is absolutely beautiful!!! I love her in any size.
    Your talent just BLOWS me away!!!
    sending hugs...

  6. Now, do I want this one more than the one with the blue fence? Sigh. So many options, so little available cash. lol ~ Maureen

  7. Oh! I just love her! She's great in both sizes and colors! I think that a rose would look lovely tucked by her ear! You are so very talented! Thank you for sharing! Hugs, Leena

  8. I love her Cindy. So sweet and I could totally imagine her with a pink rose adorning her. You are such a talented artist. I love your paintings so much. Hope you have a great week.


  9. She's a darling, lovely girl! I love the pic of you holding the rose to her hair, haha


  10. She has the most sweet and contented face ever--I love her! You should add the rose--that would be beautiful. This may be my favorite of yours yet. You are so talented! I hope to win the lottery so I can own one of your pieces one day:) Have a great week!

  11. Gosh she is beautiful, you are such a talented painter, I want to reach out and touch her wool, you can almost feel the texture. Gorgeous painting Cindy. I look at your work and photos of roses and know I must get back into my painting but somehow I am stuck and spending too much time on the computer in between caring for my mum. I am hoping the desire will come back soon.

    Lee ☺

  12. I was thinking the same thing Kerrie paint the same thing twice seems quite difficult or impossible!! I think you are so talented...when will the rest of the world discover you? When they do I hope you always have this blog and do your thing~its very inspiring!

  13. I love the Sheep so much !!! What a Beautiful, Calming photo to me.. You are Awesome!!! thanks for your support....luv u!!!

  17. What a gorgeous painting! Such a sweet expression on her face as she rests :)

  18. Cindy you are amazing! Love her....what are you going to name her? Thank you for making my day...

  19. Cindy you are amazing! Love her....what do you think you will name her? Thank you for making my day!

  20. You amaze me! Every. Single. Time. :)
    I also find it amazing that you can just replicate her in different sizes like it's no big deal. I would paint one and never be able to do it the same way again. You rock girlfriend! You really shouldn't have to have a day job..your paintings should be making you some serious money! :)
    Love YOU

  21. love, love, LOVE! to me bigger is better, but she is sweet in any size......she seems to be smiling....i think you had fun painting her twice!

  24. Hi Cindy,
    I know there would be a market for your paintings. You are very talented. I would love to own one of your paintings. When you have the reproduced giclee
    prints will you be offering them for sale? Is there a shop that will carry them and ship to Canada?

  25. Hi Cindy,
    I know there would be a market for your beautiful paintings. When you have this one reproduced with the giclee prints will you be offering them for sale or is there a shop that will carry them? Also do you know if you or the shop would ship to Canada? I would love to own one of your paintings.

  26. Oh Cindy! That painting is so gorgeous!! I love it.I just wanted to let you know you can order french stencils on ebay. That's where i bought mine.I just typed in french stencils.Thanks for the sweet comments.

  34. Cindy,

    Okay, I think I've caught up on the posts I've missed.
    This painting is so so sweet. There was a time when I was going to do Amelia's room in a pastoral design (inspired by Psalm 23- The Lord is my shepherd...) but I couldn't find any pictures or artwork to fit the style and color palette I wanted.
    This painting would have been perfect!!!
    What a sweet expression you've created on that fuzzy sheep's face, and adding a soft sweet garland of roses on her head would be such a romantic touch for those wanting a little pink.
    I, personally, would take it just like you've painted it. It's perfect.


  35. Hey sweet girl! :) Thanks for your comment on my window is going to be SO much more comfy when I get all the fabric on the seat and pillows on there too. I can't wait! :) (it's still pretty comfy even without them! lol)
    I hope I can figure out what's going on with windows live writer's driving me bonkers. It's a windows tool for bloggers. It is SO much easier to work with than blogger!! I mean seriously, I can write at least 5 blog posts to bloggers 1 when it's up and running right. I've gotta figure out whats going on with it! :-o
    It's 100 degrees here today...I am staying inside until my date tonight with my honey!! :)
    Love ya

  36. I am IN LOVE with your sheep girl! Not a thing attractive about this admission but - I'm really envious of your talent. I've been trying to get the hang of watercolor and acrylics and fight the good fight. And love it. But what you do with oils is tempting me to give it a go. Don't know the first thing. Perhaps ... you might teach??

    Thanks for writing this blog -- it's a delight.
