Wise Lamb with Zeisels

Wise Lamb with Ziesels, 2011
acrylic paint, 24" x 30"
Work of another artist that I admire has popped up in my work,
designer Eva Zeisel. I collect her work, and own a pitcher and
gravy dish like these. Added last, somehow her graceful, birdlike 
forms unify this piece. And, since I can't afford to collect too many
more now, there is something very satisfying about owning them

This wise lamb is reminding me to enjoy my daughters while they
are still young... and wise. Not sure if the ewe on top is me, but
it is a vigilant mother-figure trying not to be overprotective.
