Original Animal Portrait--Baby Lamb--Contemporary Painting

This weekend was the opening of the Western Washington State Fair in Puyallup, Washington. It is a the largest fair in Washington State and runs from September 11-27. One of my favorite activities is visiting the livestock barns. Cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, and roosters are just some of the animals that are on exhibit. This little baby lamb was inspired by this annual celebration and my visit to the livestock barns. He is painted on a 4x6 inch canvas panel with professional grade oil paints. He sold quickly in the Small Impressions Gallery, but there are still several other small animal paintings available at the gallery if you are a collector of small format art.

I love the light on the outer edges of your painting of this lamb. Your colours are lovely aswell, especially in the shadowed areas of the lambs fleece, this contrasts great against the green foliage. Well done

I love the lamb! You got more guts than I do braving the Puyallup. I find the crowds kind of intimidating. Keep up the good painting tho!
