One Last Look - sheep painting

I've really found a new fascination with sheep. I'm not sure why now, but I really do like their look of cotton balls with stick legs.
My grandparents used to live on a small farm in Ohio and I remember at certain times of the day - probably morning and night - the neighboring farmer would move his large flock of sheep and they would always follow a path along the fence line that was behind my grandparents house. Maybe that's where my fascination came from - I just forgot about it for 40 years!
