Mama Sheep Snuggling her Sweet Baby...

Here is a new painting still sitting on the easel with wet paint on it...

Phew... it was pretty challenging

And, as always it's never finished while i can still get my hands on it...
Even now as i look at these photos i see things i want to touch up and change

small changes, but it will drive me nuts until i get to it next weekend
 I'm just gonna show it to you guys anyway cause i don't have anything else interesting to talk about!

 She is just like any mama...

Always happiest when she can keep her little one close by and safe...

mama has snowy white eyelashes...

and baby has just a touch of pink in her little nose... i want to kiss that nose and that fleecy little face!

Here is a little picture collage to show you the progression of the painting...

Oh yeah,  and if anyone is interested in purchasing a giclee print of


I just took her to my photographer for a photo session and she will be available as a giclee print soon

She is 24 x 24 and i don't know the price yet, but will soon...

I want to ask ya'll a couple of questions

Two people have told me they are not getting my updated blog posts in their email like they used too

 has anyone else noticed that?

And have any of you had problems with Pinterest showing you lots of random pins instead of the pins from people you follow?

I've tried to contact them...

You can imagine how easy that is

Anyway, after i stalked them with complaints someone finally wrote back and i explained the problem in an email

Haven't heard back yet, so just curious if any of ya'll have had the same problem???

So anyway, that's all i've got for now

 I'm off to see what you guys have been up to and to catch up!


ok... just got an update on the Pinterest thing so i thought i'd share it with you in case any of you are having the same problem
here is the response from Pinterest

  7. What a beautiful, beautiful painting, Cindy! It is an amazing portrayal of a Mama and her baby. I love birthing season of the lambs when I was a kid. Your take on it is gorgeous! I don't do much pinning but it sounds like they are working to improve things- xo Diana

  8. Hi Cindy,
    Oh how I love this gorgeous painting. You have captured the Mama's love for her baby so beautifully and it speaks to my heart. You are such a wonderful artist and pretty cool too.

    Glad you got your Pinterest back on track.

  10. Hi Cindy,
    Your art is so awwww! Inspiring, you just want to study every inch of your work, every fine eyelash, every detailing to the life of your work.
    Those sheep are so amazing, I love the mama's lazy eye closing, and the snuzling of her baby
    Cindy I can't imagine painting like you, but I sure wish I did :))

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and beauty in all things artistic. Thank you my sweet friend for taking the time to visit my place and leaving always the best comments, your a doll, an artist to love.

    Have a week of spring inspiration, let this beautiful month inspire amazing ideas out of you.

    Lots of love in your art, and lots of love to you my dear friend.

  14. Oh my gosh Cindy the ewe and her lamb is just exquisite, you have captured the sensitivity between them beautifully and also the softness of their wool, I am mesmerised by this painting. I also love the light falling on the sheeps wool on the left hand side. You are so talented, imagine how wealthy you would be if you lived in New Zealand, the country with 5 Million people but 50 million sheep :)

    Is the painting a commission?

  18. You were just mentioned on Must Love Junk comments about a cow picture. I can see I'm glad I found you.

  19. Cindy - your work continues to amaze me, girl. I love the softness and the ethereal quality of each of your paintings. Your beautiful soul radiates through each and every one. :) God has truly blessed you with a special gift! :)

    xoxo laurie

  20. Oh my goodness Cindy, I just got back from attending my grandson's graduation from Marine Corp Bootcamp and what do I find on your blog? The most adorable hug-able and love filled painting of Mama and Baby Sheep EVER! It must be so wonderful to have the ability to create 'Love' in a painting, you are a true artist and as Heavens Walk above said, "Blessed by God".

  21. Also I am not getting your emails either Cindy :( but I always check your blog for new posts just in case.

  22. Beautiful, as always, Cindy! Love seeing your new art creations. This one is just SO sweet ❤ thrilled you share your incredible talent with us! Becky ❧

  23. Cindy,
    Love, love, love your sweet new sheep with her ewe. The colors really set the mood in this one. I too have not been receiving your blog post to my email. It's been happening for several months now. I even tried to resubscribe with my email and it gave me a message that I was already subscribed. If you figure out what's going on and how to fix it please let me know because I miss reading your post and my chemo fog brain doesn't remember every day and I end up stopping by your blog and having a ton to catch up on. Don't fret over 60. It's just a number.


  24. Awwww. Looks like I could reach out and touch those sheep! U are pretty darn good at that painting shit.

  25. Hello Dear Cindy,
    I just found you via Pinterest! My hubby and I adore your art. I just may order something soon. I'll keep watching and trying to decide - it's a tough decision...I am very partial to your sheep paintings! I love cows, too! So, I'll take a little more time and then give you a shout! So glad to have stumbled across your blog this evening.
