Farmhouse Sheep Artwork


I shared this shabby chippy cupboard the other day
and a peek at the vignette that was on top of it
but I had a lot of questions about the artwork~ so 
 sharing more about that little sheep.



This print is a reproduction of an old antique engraving
but is brand new


While browsing through  Gallery Direct I found this charming fellow HERE
(along with so many other vintage animal engravings )
and decided to order a print of him for a little French Farmhouse vignette.


I had this artwork printed on birchwood ~ which I absolutely love.
When GD prints on the wood- the texture and character of the wood shows through
the artwork and really lends itself to a vintage feel.

I was thinking of something that looked like an old advertising sign
and on the wood- and in the large size it is ~ it definitely has that feel.


Originally I was planning on using this piece in the kitchen
but when it arrived, I knew just where it belonged.


So it just might stay there for a bit.

  8. Brilliant idea to have it printed on Birch. I adore sheep, just having spent some time in a remote area in the UK where the mountains were speckled with their little white fluffiness. His face is a joy. Paul

  12. Perfect! Now I ask me, who waited for whom? The cupboard for the sheep or the sheep for the fantastic overlooking place on the cupborad? They look great, both together!
    Thanks and best wishes, Siret
