Fitting nicely into the artist's family of "whimsical" animals, the "Shaggy Sheep" usually draws a smile or even a laugh from its viewers. The artist has always loved sheep and it was a real pleasure to paint one in real life. The rich, deep, "midnight blue" background was achieved with a layering effect, which adds perspective paired with the earth-tone foreground. The textured fur of the sheep is appreciated more by seeing the work in person to notice the impasto and knife technique that lends a stylized yet suggestive believability to the overall form. The sheep's front legs extend below the canvas to bring the sheep even closer to the viewer for a more intimate effect.
