Fluffy sheep in a rainbow of colors and sizes stand on a warm yellow background. 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 she says, "My favorite song in the whole wide world is You Are My Sunshine. And while I am not a huge fan of words on walls, I have the lyrics to the song all over my house. I often wonder what the world would be like if, every single day, we sang this song to each other. Might be nice."
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.
