Up Close and Personal

We are on the countdown to Easter.  Birth and new life remind us that spring is here and the dark months are behind us. This portrait is a tribute to the season.  Capturing the light was my goal.  With the light behind him, the ears of this little lamb took on a soft pink glow while the white of his wool was apparent only around the edges of the figure.  He is on a 5x7 inch canvas and SOLD in my Etsy Shop but I have other original small format oil paintings of birds and animals still for sale.  Check it out here
