Day 10 Back Gate
Living in the country is wonderful,
until you are snowed in, froze in, rained in,
and on and on it goes.
We have had a lot of snow this season and trying to make sure animals are fed
is pretty critical.
We stage some hay up by this back gate to make it easier to get it in the field for the sheep and the goats.
The Back Gate is fun to play and climb on in the summer,
but in the winter, well you don't want to stick your tongue on it, ya know.
Many kids have climbed on this gate and fed goats and sheep on the other side,
we've used it as a backdrop for family photos,
and sat on it just to watch the animals and the sun go down.
I haven't painted a landscape during this whole challenge,
but I could no longer resist.
I painted this in my mind several times before I actually picked up a brush,
so when I did get in front of my easel,
I knew exactly how to do it.
I even dreamed about this,
so, I knew I had to paint it.
