I haven't been feeling very creative lately and have missed a few challenges. I fell in the snow (am doing ok now) and I hate this extreme cold with a passion. It's all very depressing.
But enough of that. This is my attempt to get back into the swing of things. The Diva (of I am the Diva ) has reminded us that it is Chinese New Year Thursday and asked us to use this as our prompt. I decided to use the year of the sheep (instead of the goat) mostly because for some odd reason I think sheep are adorable (even though I'm allergic to wool). I've made a zia, using the tangle bunyip. (I borrowed the sheep from google.) My Chinese character is pretty lame, but seems to be the one for sheep rather than that for goat - I think - I'm mostly going on pictures from google, so this could really be anything!
She's sepia, mostly because that's the pen I grabbed by mistake. But I had to include this next picture because for reasons beyond my ken, some people dye their sheep multi-colours.
I'm sure the dye is non-toxic. I actually read somewhere that one farmer did this to entertain drivers as they drove by his farm. Seems more of a dangerous distraction to me. But it's a bit of welcome colour in an otherwise dreary February.
