Here's Lookin At Ewe

8.13.2011

This is my latest farm animal that has taken up residence in the Savvy household. This piece is from the same artist who painted my cow picture.

I received an email from him a few weeks after the post on the cow canvas I purchased from him. You can read the post about the cow canvas here. To remind you of the story, he had sent me the wrong cow canvas and I emailed him and told him. He said he would send me an 8 x 10 canvas to make up for his mistake. I told him another cow, sheep, or rooster would be fine. Anything  country French. Well, he sent me a canvas with a bunny on it that looked like it belonged in a nursery so I gave it to my granddaughters in Nashville. His wife looked at my blog post and told him to fix this so he contacted me and said that his wife said he had to make this right. Long story short I got to pick out another canvas and I chose this sheep. Now it was more than he thought would be fixing the mistake and asked if I would pay what was fair and he would ship for free. Deal.

Just look at that face. Mr. Savvy doesn't think she is cute, but I do.

So for now she resides in my bookcase in the great room.

So here's lookin at ewe!

Have a great weekend.

  4. Bravo to you Kim for choosing original art for your home! For the same or a little more, you have something that is actually created by someone who loves to paint.

    Mr. Chuckles work is very nice, and his folk art horses are wonderful!
    But your ewe is just perfect where he/she lives now.
    Happy Weekend~

  7. Ewe is so cute. LOL I love him. Sounded like you got a very good deal and kuddos to the artist for caring enough about a client to make things right. Rare these days.

  16. I think he is really cute!
    I love the story too.., his wife stepping in and all!
    I bought an 80+ year old baby doll last weekend. He is adorable, big blue eyes that blink and he has one of those hard painted heads with Campbell's Soup kid kind of face.
    My kids think he is CREEPY!
    I may have to send him to my sisters house for a vacation.... for keeps! They just do NOT like him. Too many scary doll movies I guess!

  18. Hello Kim I think he's cute but just a bit too serious. But overall he fits well to your shelf.

  19. I'd say that you were dealing with a very honest and upright couple there, Kim. I love that ewe!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I believe I've seen that face on a milk carton...the ewe might have been kidnapped...

    Was very nice of the wife to make her husband make it right, but it could be she wanted the evidence of the kidnapped ewe removed...

    Oh wait, no, that was another story...YOUR ewe is totally transferrable!

    Hugs~

  22. I love it, Kim! It looks great on your shelf, too. Kudos to the artist {and the woman behind him} who did the right thing. You don't see that very often so when someone does do it, it stands out.

  23. It's great that he made it right.(Good thing his wife is a reader.) I love the way you've displayed the painting at the back of your bookshelf. It gives such depth to the vignette. Thanks for sharing.

  28. She is wonderful! A beautiful face and expression. Ewes, by the way are female sheep. Might need that info for a trivia quiz sometime;-)
    I'm looking around now for a place I could hang a rooster.
