(Ovis aries) are quadrupedal, ruminant mammals typically kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates.

Getting back to Paul D'Ambrposio and his comment above. Paul I LOVE your blog. http://folkartcooperstown.blogspot.com/. I just discovered it. But there's no easy way at the blog to send comments about the blog back to you. Just wanted to let you know.

It's never too late to answer, Lesli. I welcome all your comments. Each of the pieces has two very different qualities. As I say, I don't pick between my children.


I was too late to guess, but I was torn. They're such different pieces, different themes, even different color intensities. But I, too, like the humor of the Frankenstein work. But I love the colors and the movement in the sheep herding work.

I'm glad they chose you!

Thanks for your comment Andrey. The piece Andrey is talking about, the "earlier work on the theme 'Sheep'", can be found at this page on my blog: http://shelleyfolkart.typepad.com/folk_art_carved_and_paint/2009/10/artist-of-the-month-at-traditional-folk-art-website.html.

If we'll consider these works on professional level so "Sheep Herding, Dog Stalking Sheep" is more various with compositional decision than "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein" which has very statical and simple placing of details for such avant-garde theme. Though I think your earlier work on theme "Sheep" was even more interesting than "Sheep Herding, Dog Stalking Sheep". With my best regards, Andrey

Wow, another great reply. Keep them coming!
Barbara, I can really identify with what you said about not fitting into any category and how frustrating this can be. Categories can be so deadening but they are also so necessary to be found and to get ones work shown. Thanks for your thoughtful response to this Quiz. I know there are more of you out there in cyberspace who want to speak up...


This is a hard call. I went to the their site to see what kind of work they had already. Much of it was more anvant garde so I was thinking the wonderful carving of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein" (I loved the play on words and the humor of the piece).
But then I saw that they had more "conventional" art also so it was hard to guess. It so depends on who the juror was...

But I am going to guess "Sheep Herding, Dog Stalking Sheep" also because of my experience with jurors.

I have a hard time with my art because I don't fit into any category. I am not fine art, not really fine craft and the folk art people don't really want me either (though I am totally self taught). I have found the right niche at fiber shows though so have mostly given up the rest. I hate the jury process of art shows.

Paul thanks for being in touch and going out on a limb. But I need still more comments before I can anser your question. Anyone else out there want to enter this quiz?

Paul D'Ambrosio

Am I going out on a limb to guess they liked the sheep? Not that it's bad, but i know art jurors. As always, the Salon des Refuses is more interesting....
