Mary Had a Little Lamb


I looked up "picturesque" in the dictionary... Well, no... who uses an actual dictionary anymore... I googled the definition of "picturesque."
  • Picturesque definition, visually charming or quaint, as if resembling or suitable for a painting
Ahhh... the perfect word. 
One spring day several years ago, I took a whole roll... Well, no... who uses film rolls anymore... I snapped so many "picturesque" photos.  There were the children of my niece, my sister-in-law's new lambs, my brother pulling kids in the wagon behind the tractor, a big white dog... It was all very... well, picturesque!
I kept those photos in a file thinking that any number of them could become a painting someday.  That was over 5 years ago, and finally this week was time to pick one to put on canvas.

This painting was my response to this weekly-ish challenge word "Lamb."

Here are a few of those other photos.  You never know... one of them could end up as a painting some day...
