Fresh from the video camera to Youtube…..
It’s been bitterly cold here in the Northeast and while we haven’t gotten as much snow as those north of us, we are still having quite the snowy winter. We haven’t had a Monday in school since January 5th! And today is a holiday, so we are home again – not that I’m complaining. I’m getting used to the shorter work weeks.
Stay warm and safe out there!
According to the Chinese Zodiac, starting February 19, 2015 will the The Year of the Sheep(goat/ram). So, you still have plenty of time to order and receive your very own Tangled Sheep 2015 Calendar!
Tangled Sheep 2015 on Redbubble. Click through to see what each months sheep is. Thanks!
I had two more sheep to make to complete the calendar for 2015 (not to mention ideas for the next calendar, but they’ll happen in 2015) and one of them was this Happy New Year to Ewe.
There is a very faint background of fireworks around her….this is of course, January’s Sheep ;) She is available singly and in the Calendar at Redbubble.
I’m glad I was able to get them done – the last one was a St. Patrick’s Day sheep….stay tuned for that post. Of course it didn’t help that I came down sick on Sunday – fever, cough and now a doctors visit today. I know if I don’t go, I’ll be wishing I did around Christmas morning. I hear this is going around like crazy, whatever “IT” is, but I’m just hoping to start feeling better as quickly as it came up on me. This just goes to show – no matter how much I take vitamins, how much I wash my hands, those sneaky little germs get through. Grrrrr!
I hope you have a lovely, healthy, happy, Merry Christmas!
ETA: Just had my first rude comment since I started this here blog, so I guess I’ve been quite fortunate. For those of you who enjoy reading, seeing the art work – thanks for sticking around. If you don’t, just move on. I don’t tolerate rude, non-constructive comments. You’re basically just saying something for the sake of being mean. You don’t have to like the blog, my art or anything I do. And you certainly don’t have to stick around and see anymore. Carry on and Happy Holidays.
My newest addition to my Sheep Tangles…..

Sheep and more in my Redbubble Shop
Get started on that holiday shopping – it’s really not that far away!
My intent was to use my new, Big Box of 64 Gelly Rolls to color this in. But while I was sorting the new, Big Box of 64 Gelly Rolls and making the color chart they conveniently give you……I saw how maybe I wouldn’t be able to control the amount of color I was putting down.
So I chickened out.
I decided to still use color, but dug into my Irotijen colored pencils and my little jar of mineral spirits instead.
When I tell you the colors are “off” believe me. There is more coral in that then is showing and for the life of me I cannot edit it to have it show. Sigh. The original is so much richer and not as neony. I’m not sure if I will regularly be adding color to my work, but this was a nice change. And it really is more time consuming….before I knew it, 4 o’clock had rolled around.
So I have a few editing programs – inkscape, gimp, paintshop pro…….any recommendation, tips, techniques, out and out yelling at me to do this or do that??? I’ll take it. This was so frustrating to try to get an accurate representation of, I gave up. pfffft! Obviously I don’t know how to use any of the programs I have to do what I want. Very different for me from editing photos.
Have a Wonderful Weekend and Happy Doodling!
