Part of the charm of paintings of sheep is the peaceful pastoral scenes. That’s also one of the reasons I used to like to stand and watch my own flock of sheep. If the painting happens to have a sheepdog in it, so much the better
A good friend of mine was a painter and did quite a few paintings of sheep. I wish I had bought one that particularly struck my fancy, but it sold before I could even think about buying it. I'm not the only one who likes sheep.
