The Herd


This painting of sheep reminds me of Nietzsche's philosophy of the herd. They all just follow blindly. I do not want to do that. I want my choices to matter. Well, my e-mail from the state fair got lost in Neverneverland, but I was able to get into their results on the internet just now and I did not get in again this year. I have no room to complain, I got in 2 years in a row and took awards both years. Although I did not get in last year, my plein aire painting I did on location at the state fair last year sold...so I have had my turn and now it is the time for someone else to shine!!! Well, I just planted some flowers in the pots in the front yard and adjusted the water. I am going back out to play with the plants in the yard a bit. I read something interesting by Thoreau this morning,"For every thousand hacking at the leaves of evil, there is one striking at the root." Since I will be hacking at roots...I thought this thought was a good one for today!! : )
