Day 30 Birthday

Day 30 Birthday

On one of the coldest days of this miserably cold winter,
out pops this little guy.

He actually was part of a set of twins, but the girl did not make it.
But this little guy stood up right away,
nursed right away,
and then made it through another brutally cold night in the barn.

  You can tell he's small,but most lambs are small at birth,
but they are so strong.

One funny thing about them is their head are so large and their body is so small at birth.
In a few days or weeks, it all evens out, but it looks a little weird at first.

They will be up walking around within minutes of their birth.
By the next day they are hoping around, 
and by the third day they are all over the place.

We raise a lot of animals here at JumbleBerry Farm
and lambs by far are the strongest,
and maybe the cutest.

Hopefully you've enjoyed going on this painting journey with me
in the last 30 days as I have painted a painting every single day.
Many, if not all of these paintings were of things I've never painted before.
I've had a great time and I've learned so much.

Hopefully this will carry on into the future.

I'm heading to a 4-H conference in Lexington, KY on Thursday
and will have many of these paintings available there for purchase.

Thank you all for following me and taking the time to comment on here about the work produced.
I appreciate every single comment as always,
but especially those by other artists who are also participating and painting every day.

Thanks again.

  1. This is a great painting and such an interesting post. The colors you used really make the little guy pop to the foreground. Love the name of your farm and hearing about how lambs act when they're born.
    Congratulations on your excellent handling of the 30 in 30 Challenge!

  2. Thanks Fay. I sometime struggle with color selection, but I'm using that color wheel all the time it seems. We had a family contest to name the farm when we moved here 12 years ago. My son in law said he remembered when we moved there the berry patches were a jumbled up mess of berries, so his suggestion was JumbleBerry. He won the prize. Lambs are fun and I've go so many great pics of them I'll be painting more of them. Thanks for the great comment.

  3. Sharon what a sweet painting. Are you holding him? How wonderful to raise animals. I would love to have chickens again.

    1. my husband is holding him. Chickens are the one thing I'm not crazy about, chickens and dogs. I like to paint chickens but I don't want to pick one up. Thank you for your great comment.
