Turn Left at the Sign of the Winking Sheep

Sounds like the beginning of a Historical Novel.  Sorry to disappoint. 

My cousin Maggi McClure has yearly sheep dog trials on Vashon Island ( a short ferry ride from our house), and she asked me to paint her sheep shape as advertisement for her event.  She just sent me this photo from last year. 

I painted it a ala Jackson Pollock, one of my art school heroes.  The faint whisker is actually a "BAAA"

My hat is a genuine sheep herder/Irish chap cap from Donegal that I picked up when I went on a painting trip in Ireland with my Uncle Bert, Maggi's dad.

Ireland is my ancestral home.  People wonder where the Carrasco came from.  (My former marriage...it's a lovely name...scans better than McCabe)
