I love putting sheep in my artwork, hence this linocut! I always start with a drawing on my linocut, realist that I am. I'll probably add some color in the background but it's not certain yet. Sheep remind me of the time I tried to spin fleece with a drop spinner and even dyed some wool with natural dyes and made some sort of decent hats. You should try it! There's no lack of fascinating things to learn about and do in the creative world. It's easy to get tangled up in them!

Since I enjoy looking for paintings with butterflies, I found this one by Italian painter Dosso Dossi titled Jupiter Painting Butterflies, Mercury and Virtue, circa 1522-24. It certainly is a funny view of the supreme deity of the ancient Romans. Painting butterflies promotes relaxation! Apparently, since he is god, just painting the butterflies brings them to life.
