Spring has not quite sprung but it’s trying. Warm, cold, freezing rain, snow, windy, balmy, sunny, cloudy with a promise of still needing your puffy coat, the mandatory Oregonian garment they pass out at the border. This is the time of year where the drugstore aisles look especially sweet and pastel and cute animals hunt for easter eggs and wear satin ribbons. Why not join them? This little black sheep has a soft spot in my heart because he’s being used as artwork in the end credits for an upcoming documentary about an Ashland sheep farm, the life of the farmers and sheep, from animal care to wool sheering to wholesaling their artisan wool to the retail shop they run. Title not released yet but out next year.
Things like this are fun, random, enjoyable and one of the lovely perks of living in a smallish town where you know someone who knows someone who can herd a group of artists who paint sheep to drop off their paintings all within a two hour window. Baaaa!
