Davis Barnyard

Madonna once said it is better to live a day as a tiger than a hundred days as a sheep.  These three sheep huddled in the corner and watched me paint.  If one moved the others moved behind.  They are amazingly timid animals.  Their defense is to get behind.  This is my favorite barn and while painting it, the farmer came by and said he was 'getting after it' which means repairs.  I told him that I liked it as is, even missing quite a large number of boards.  It draws me every time I pass by.  I like painting it in the early morning but this day didn't start until 10AM.  This timing must have upset the sheep.
