This is a very peaceful piece of work Andrew, the colours and tones used are warm and comforting, especially with the well behaved sheep !!

Lol; Thank you Linda; peace & love; God bless, Andy xx

I wanted this to be a painting of peace and restfulness in difficult times, but also of animals trusting their shepherd as I've seen a number of times in the Middle-East

Thank you Heather; lovely feedback; peace & love; God bless, Andy xx

Thank you Jacqueline; lovely observations!; peace & love; God bless, Andy x

Thank you dear Carole, really lovely feedback; peace & love; God bless, Andy
