Sheep Herder's Wagon
This painting is in preparation for the annual Trailing of the Sheep festival in the Hailey/Sun Valley area. I'm looking forward to painting outside (plein air) with friends. I'm also looking forward to learning more about the custom of bringing herds of sheep down from the hillsides through the center of the town (presumably for auctions and/or slaughter but we won't think about that!).
We'll go out Friday morning to locate the herd...hoping for good weather and beautiful scenes to paint....or at least to take reference photos.
