Blue and white sheep orbit in a rich pink landscape. The fluffy animals all look to the viewer with a regal, knowing pose. 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, "During one single bicycle ride in Nantucket, I watched the fishing boats unload their daily catches, witnessed the birth of a baby horse on a farm and enjoyed an ice cream cone while watching the sunset. Never underestimate all the wonders you can experience on one bike ride in Nantucket."
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.
