In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd feature an Irish artist, Barry Maguire. This painting is called "The Windy Connemara." Connemara Blackface Mountain Sheep are the most common sheep in Ireland. Their long, course coat helps them withstand harsh weather.
I love how the texture of the sheep's wool is picked up in the background grasses as the wind blows both as flat as it can. I bet this painting is even more beautiful in person.
I also noticed that the colors of this painting are the colors of the Irish flag.
Hope you all had a great St. Patrick's Day!
