A Miss Moon Christmas. Lesson Three: You Can Herd Sheep And You Can Herd Cows, But Try As You Might, You Cannot Herd Snowmen, oil on canvas, 10″x14″. For sale on etsy.
Isn’t this so true? Miss Moon really has her work cut out for her with this enthusiastic and hardworking bunch. I think the Welsh Corgi (yes that is a Corgi at the front in the Santa hat even if it doesn’t really resemble one) is going to be devastated when he realizes that he’s really not being very effective, but the English Sheepdog, Sheltie, and Border Collie are all in various stages of acceptance.
This is the last Miss Moon Christmas painting until next year’s holiday season!
Miss Moon Was A Dog Governess. Lesson Twelve: Make The Most Of Whatever The Weather May Bring. Oil on canvas, 11″x14″. Sold.
I had fun with this one. In fact, she may be my favourite Miss Moon for the moment. Perhaps it’s because she seems caught in an uncharacteristic moment of unbridled joy. I think she’s screaming, but John thinks she’s singing Christmas carols. We had a minor argument over it and I think I won.
Can anyone else only think of the amount of wet scarves, hats and mittens that she will have to contend with later on? I had flashbacks to elementary school- just after recess when you had to hang up wet snowsuits and mittens and the puddles they made- not to mention the musty smell of wet wool emanating from the cloakroom. Then there was always the feeling of dismay at the end of the school day when you had to put the damp hats and scarves back on to go home. I just wrote ‘cloakroom’ didn’t I? Do they even use that term anymore? I’m so out of date. I don’t own a cellular telephone, and I say ‘cloakroom’. Time to go watch ‘Little House On the Prairie’.
