Barb at Grits and Glamour is hosting What's On Your Wall Wednesday, and I have decided to join in for the first time today. Please go check out her blog to find out the other participants in this fun activity.
For three generations my family was in the sheep ranching business on the prairies and mountains of Colorado. As a child, I remember being around the sheep pens and joining my Dad and Grandpa in the pickup doing sheep business. As I was not one to enjoy the outdoor life, it was never a fun activity for me. Nevertheless, I was fascinated by the sheep. As an adult after inheriting some of my great-grandmother's original sheep drawings and paintings, I started collecting sheep prints that were popular in the late 19th to early 20th century. Below are some of those that are on my walls.
