Fluffy sheep in shades of pink and yellow float on a turquoise background. They look out to the viewer with both knowing and playful expressions. Part of Lesli DeVito's long running series of sheep, pairing these gentle animals with clever titles to represent human thoughts and groups. Of this painting, Lesli says, "On my 15th birthday I went to the Bahamas on a church mission trip. We stayed in a tiny house on the beach and during the day we taught all of the local children how to swim. I will never forget the charming people and the beauty of the island. I could not believe how clear the turquoise water was and how I could see schools of the fish my mom had in her salt-water fish tank. This painting is dedicated to the beautiful people of the Bahamas."
Lesli Devito can't quite remember when she started painting, just that she's been doing it for quite a while now. With no formal training, Lesli took her own path and experimented with different types of paint. Eventually, she settled on something unconventional: acrylic house paint. She hopes that her works will "take people to their happy place." Lesli also created a blog called My Old Country House in which she writes about her life, art and other adventures.
